When thinking about a city drawing, you may think of skylines or detailed architectural sketches, but not necessarily anything like these Vesa Sammalisto 'Identity Illustrations.' Not only are these illustrations cartoon-like, but they are about the farthest thing from typical.

Vesa Sammalisto is the designer and illustrator behind these city drawings of Hyvinkaa, Finland, which is an area close to the more well-known Helsinki. Sammalisto was selected to create these illustrations in order to help the small town of Hyvinkaa establish a name for itself.

These Vesa Sammalisto 'Identity Illustrations' are attempting to help this town update its image, and are quite effective in their ability to showcase business areas, parks, public areas and modes of transportation.
