Space Is The Place

Space Is The Place is an exhibition in Portland, Oregon at Land Gallery. It is a curated selection of graphic design work from the past decade.

Featured are a series of new oversize metallic posters, assorted editorial designs, identity design, type designs, music packaging, assorted broadcast work and other projects.

A limited edition booklet printed in a series of 1,000 containing design-related writings is being given away for free to complement the exhibition.

A set of 4 custom buttons was produced for the event, as well. Assorted projects designed by the studio are available for sale at Land throughout the run of the show, as well.

Accompanyingthe exhibition was a West Coast lecture tour in which I waved my hands around and gave glib, incisive commentary on Japanese typography, recent projects, writing on graphic design, and the state of Design in Japan today.
