Listen on a series of tram discussions organized by Helsinki Design Weekly now in podcast. Discussions are presenting questions and searching for answers to the themes of city, culture and work.
First episode: Grafia
Let’s talk about the city as a space for visual communications. The tram discussion is moderated by Kaarle Hurtig, and participants include street artist and art director Maikki Rantala (Grafia Street Art Guild G-Rex), architect Tuomas Siitonen and graphic designer Ilkka Kärkkäinen (Dynamo & Son).
Grafia ry is an organization for visual communication designers. With more than 1000 professional members, Grafia promotes appreciation for Finnish visual communications and guards the professional, legal and financial interests of its members.

Q&A Tram Talks
These discussions are rooted deep in this 2017 year’s Helsinki Design Week theme, Q&A, pondering urban development, education and learning, sustainable development, spaces and houses, as well as creative field entrepreneurship and cooperation.
A tram dedicated by our partner HST to culture will transform into an after-work design tram that will tour the districts of Helsinki. There is a predesigned route for each daily theme to support the discussion topic.
Graphic designers’ association Grafia, start-up centre Maria 01, working community coach and creative work promoter Avantage Oy and Ompeluseura (“sewing circle”), a working life community with more than 20,000 members on Facebook, have created fascinating content for the rides.
