Mural images

Just as no two neighborhoods are alike, no two Hotel Indigo properties are alike. But they're all close to shopping, local restaurants, museums, art galleries and great music that makes each neighborhood distinct. Hotel's neighbourhood can be experienced well when one looks the mural themes of the Hotel Indigo Helsinki - Boulevard. Two mural images are created by Linda Linko and Pietari Posti. Third theme is received from the shipyard.

Linda Linko is an award-winning* illustrator

Linda Linko is an award-winning* illustrator and graphic designer from Helsinki. She did the unique Helsinki-themed mural for the Hotel Indigo Helsinki – Boulevard using her favored mixed technique. Linda knows the Indigo neighborhood well, as her studio is located in Viiskulma in Punavuori. See Linda Linko's English-language interview on Hotel Indigo-TV. The interview was filmed in December 2014 at Linko and Tiina Koivusalo's joint exhibition at the Galleria Huuto.

Linda’s work ranges from brand identities and creative consultancy to art and illustration with an output that varies from strict typographic productions to expressive hand drawing. Imperfect shapes, large formats, black humor and basically everything that happens while she is away from her computer inspire Linda. * Linda was recently awarded with Gold in the Corporate Illustration -category at the European Design Awards 2014.
