I like abstract typography. And in Chinese (oriental) types, the low hanging fruit will be the strokes, as opposed to the alphabets. // Ikko Tanaka, Nihon Buyo, 1981

Japanese Poster: Dance Today. Ikko Tanaka. 1975

Japanese Poster: Dance Today. Ikko Tanaka. 1975

The Gurafiku archive of Japanese graphic design is a collection of visual research surveying the history of graphic design in Japan.

Another genius of Japanese poster design. Ikko Tanaka established his own studio in Tokyo in 1963, and is credited with developing Muji's identity, where he worked as art director until 2001. You wouldn't believe how much this guy has been ripped-off over the years by other "poster designers". This is the real deal; clean, effortless design created with a true illustrator's hand.
