Idea #384 largely focuses on the work of Yui Takada and his studio Allright Graphics, one of Japan’s most idiosyncratic and unique contemporary design practices. Takada’s work pulls from the Japanese visual vernacular as much as from contemporary DTP aesthetics. His hybrid studio, publishing practice, and product company are helping to define what contemporary Japanese graphic design looks like. Profusely illustrated with some far-out editorial design trickery, this issue of IDEA is not to be missed! #384 ships with a deluxe 2019 calendar and a bound-in translation of Appolinaire’s “Calligrammes: Poems of Peace and War 1913-1916” translated into Japanese.
