Japan’s contributions to poster design have exhibited continued creativity, emotion and skillful design.
Graphis is proud to present some of the best poster design from around the world. Specifically, the previous two Poster Annual competitions included impressive Gold-winning work from Japan. For example, designer Youhei Ogawa entered “Nekyia Noh” (ABOVE, LEFT) which advertised a Noh theater play based on Homer’s epic poem, “Odyssey.” The poster’s serious tone is contrasted by another Gold-winner by Takashi Akiyama who designed “15. Message Illustration Poster 2017” (ABOVE, RIGHT). With it’s whimsical illustration, this poster was utilized in Tama Art University and called students to action.
