TDC Annual Awards 2000, Members' Bronze Prize : Taku Satoh
2000 Award Winners

Messages for the 21st Century

I love to surf and used to go to the beach every week when I was younger.
I remember the thrill of riding a huge wave as if it were yesterday. I learned many things from the sea and from surfing. The ability to have a poised understanding of your position, to be able to see the little waves along with the larger swells, and to be able to balance yourself - these are all skills that are essential in the relationship between society (the ocean), designs (the act of surfing) and the designer (myself).
I made this poster for the "Messages for the 21st Century" exhibition. Thank you very much for the Prize.
