Japanese Graphic Design
In the years 1920 and 1930, Japan exploded literally a new form of graphic design, the daughter of a very important social change …
The graphics, invaded everything, magazines, advertisements, posters and all that he could somehow convey the change of a society that was changing and affirming through industrial development and technology. Names unknown to us (or almost) as Gihachiro Okayama, Kenkichi Sugimoto, Hiromu Hara Shujiro Shimomura and have designed posters and magazine covers that are still admired for their consistency and clean graphics. A sign that (as often happens) the good design knows no boundaries and historical timelines.
HERE you will find a rich collection of Japanese graphics of the period. Enjoy.
