Konstsamfundet is an association for the promotion of Swedish-speaking arts, culture and education in Finland founded in 1940 by cultural patron and businessman Mr. Amos Anderson. They tasked us with creating an visually appealing mini-site that would show how a breakdown of their grants into different categories. Talented illustrator and graphic designer Camilla Pentti created the lively vignettes for each of the categories.

The dashboard is both intended to help potential grant applicants and Konstsamfundet’s own analysts. The grants can be filtered by year and an advanced comparison view allows more detailed study of the categories. All charts can be exported as images and tables of individual awarded grants can be downloaded as excel files.
