2001 Award Winners

Self Promotional Poster

This is a poster for promoting a creative unit we call "Yamaguchi Kaoru + Kasai Kumi" that I formed with one of my colleagues who is a copy writer. This is a very unusual piece in that I am the client. It all began when I asked Kumi to "put some words to" an illustration I made on my Mac to kill time. I was surprised to receive such a prestigious award for this work. Thank you very much.
