TAKE ME TO THE FJORDS

Design by ingridesign

Design by ingridesign

I’m so happy to introduce the new ingridesign FJORDS collection now available in my storenvy online shop. The design is based on the feeling of wanderlust and is a tribute to the amazing and breathtaking fjords in Norway. I grew up in Sandnes overlooking a fjord, and it was something I would almost take for granted until I moved away. Now I long for it and see it as a symbol of home and calmness.

FJORD /fēˈôrd, fyôrd/
a long, narrow, deep inlet of the sea between high cliffs, as in Norway and Iceland, typically formed by submergence of a glaciated valley.

The collection currently consists of three different poster prints in two different sizes; 460mm x 615mm (18 x 24) or 305mm x 406mm (12 x 16), all printed on thick durable matte paper. The design is also available on a white soft 80% polyester + 20% cotton fleece fabric pillow, as well as a black unisex tank top. Click on any image below to find out more or make a purchase;
