FUZZY COMMUNICATION - GRAPHIC DESIGN BY TAKAHASHI YOSHIMARU
Impression Architecture – Graphic Design of Shinnoske Sugisaki and Fuzzy – Graphic Design of Takahashi Yoshimaru is a rare set of poster monographs by two renowned, award–winning graphic designers from Osaka: Shinnoske Sugisaki and Yoshimaru Takahashi. Each presents over 150 works in this poster collection with essays by curators Wilhelm Hornbostel and Juergen Doering of Museum Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg. This set of two design books by Sugisaki and Takahashi is published on the occasion of the exhibition: ‘Virtue, Truth, Beauty – Graphic Design of Shinnoske Sugisaki and Yoshimaru Takahashi’ which is hosted at Museum Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg from 23 November 2007 to February 2008. Engaged in graphic design (from analog to digital) for the past 30 years, the two Japanese designers embrace different design expressions and aesthetics, yet share a common admiration for the beauty of Chinese characters and an experimental spirit in design and education. Selected design works are featured in the collections of museums in Japan and overseas.
