Poster
Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun T-1 World Cup 2nd
Summer of 2006 "A Lion Bouncing Up and Down"


A person running himself while dreaming himself in high heals. A snake that extends itself and bites a shirt. The lion is on top of the world wearing a t-shirt.
Everyone likes t-shirts and high heals so much that the lion sticks his tongue out. This poster was made so that the picture forms letters and letters form a picture. The typography on the front and back of t-shirts in the street are bouncing up and down. It would please me to see people become happy through typography.
A big thanks to everyone at the "Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun"for creating the T-1 World Cup that 24 designers from around the world participated in. Thanks also to Epson for their cooperation.
The lion is bouncing up and down.
