Right now you see her everywhere in Sweden. Or rather, her design, her illustrations and her toys.

Ingela P Arrhenius work as a freelance illustrator based in Stockholm. In addition to advertising and magazine commissions, she illustrates children’s books, and has designed several stamp editions and patterns for products such as children’s clothing, fabrics, toys and stationery. This productive and talanted Swede is very influenced by 50’ies and 60’ies poster art and illustration.

She has also worked for French cosmetic company Biotherm in Paris, and her illustrations have been used in their Christmas line.

I love her work with recycled packages transformed into the project Recycled People, and her collection of wood block figures.

She attended the Berghs School of Communication in Stockholm, and has since been part of several free-lance groups.  Today she lives and works in the Stockholm suburb Enskede, in a dynamic studio along with illustrators, designers, journalists, photographers and translators.

Take a look at her blog and homepage:
