Jan-Erik Andersson – Works and Collaborations

Book Design: Marjo Malin, 2019
ISBN 978-952-7226-42-1

The idea for the design of this book was to make it look like a stack of A4:s. For this reason, I ended up designing an open spine. When I had the opportunity, I also wanted to do something that is not usually done, a glued spine. The glue was also a reference to Andersson’s works, which often are made of everyday materials. On the cover, I used the three primary colors that Andersson often uses. The foil on the letters is a reference to his sculptures made of metal. At the beginning of Andersson’s career, he made a work inspired by the look of the Beatles’ White Album. The Beatles also revolutionized the world of the young Andersson. I also wanted to refer to this classic record cover and I left the cover otherwise blank.

Sometimes it’s nice when somebody else has taken care of the creative side, and you can focus on typography. The advertising agency BOND has designed a brand identity for The University of the Arts Helsinki. However, I always like to add something surprising.

Beautiful Mistake

Beautiful Mistake is my own company for which Jan-Erik Andersson has designed tables. Together with Andersson, we designed a trade fair stand for the Habit Fair 2015. This was my second trade fair stand and I think it was a really successful collaboration.

French balcony railing, design for Life on a Leaf -house 2009 I wanted to make a text that is at the same time ornamental and says something for the balcony in the Life on a Leaf house. The challenge was to find words that have letters that function as outlines and are suitable for laser cutting. “Upp” means “up” in Swedish and the “pupu” is “bunny”. I was thinking about the positivity of the Swedish-speaking Finns, when I designed the balcony plate. It relates to the language of the resident. The French balcony also serves as an exit in case of fire. The sentence encourages climbing out if needed.


Marjo Malin has been designing graphics for published, printed and electronic media. During her career she has e.g. designed books, corporate identities, websites, animations, multimedia, information graphics. Marjo’s graphic style, based on minimalism, is ideal designing books, especially art books. She also loves to make illustrations, which have a strange humoristic twist.
