Space is the Place

Exhibition in Portland, Oregon

Space is the Place was an exhibition in Portland, Oregon at Land Gallery. It is a curated selection of graphic design work from the first decade of the studio’s existence.

A series of new oversize metallic posters, assorted editorial designs, identity design suites, type designs, music packaging, assorted broadcast work, and other projects were featured.

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

A set of 4 custom buttons was produced for the event, as well.

Accompanying the 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:
