Posters for Taku Satoh Design Office Inc.

A poster for our office. In Japan, as elsewhere around the world, the computer is becoming an ever more important design tool. Here, I tried to create a typographic poster using the only tool I am truly comfortable with - the pencil. I used a computer to draw the profiles of the characters, which I later filled in with gradations of fine pencil lines. This is the first time I have expressed my 'analog' work using digital technology.
