Royals - extraordinary everyday people
Greetings from France! Mikko Nilsson and his family have fulfilled their dream of living abroad. This happened one day in October after it had rained for 7 weeks in a row - Enough!!! I’m pretty sure all Finns go through these thoughts but do nothing, except complain of course. They packed the kids and some supplies I guess in the car and drove to the south of France - Aix en Provence to be exact. The original idea was to stay on the road for 10 weeks but after 3 years they still spend a big part of the year abroad.
Mikko is passionate about photography & board sports on land, water and snow. With senior skateboarding being especially close to heart. This is Mikko’s favourite place to visit - I strongly recommend not clicking if you are the jealous kind - Cassis
Professionally Mikko helps companies thrive through design
. His kids think he’s job is easy because he gets to draw all day long. Nice. Mikko is the mastermind behind the original visuals & brand identity of Saint Vacant from 2005 until 2016. He has played a huge part in getting the brand where it is today and I CAN NOT thank him enough! Mikko’s attention to detail while keeping a constant eye on the big picture is phenomenal!
