Ahtisaari
On this blog, we have repeatedly featured the insights of Marko Ahtisaari, the former director of design strategy at Nokia and now director of brand and design at the advertising-supported phone company Blyk, and earlier this year we had the pleasure of working with him on a small project.

Yesterday Marko’s father Martti Ahtisaari, the former president of Finland, was honoured with the Nobel Peace Price.

Our warmly felt congratulations to the Ahtisaari family.

(The photo, which comes from the Guardian website shows Marko and his father in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, on August 2 1973. Ahtisaari was then the Finnish ambassador in Tanzania.)
