"Wiinblad's style is marked by bright colors, playful design, and a sense of joyfulness. Often incorporating human figures into his work, Wiinblad's characters were usually round-faced and charming. Some of his better known professional associations include porcelain work for Rosenthal, illustration for Hans Christian Andersen, and textiles for Nymolle Fajance Fabrik." from Dwell
