Impressive Posters by Kazumasa Nagai from the ’60s and ’70s.


 

Born in 1929, Kazumasa Nagai is an award winning Japanese designer who has used traditional Japanese artistic styles and values in his work throughout his long career. He communicates his messages using simplicity, elegance, texture and color. He has also been very involved in designing for environmental activism and design.

I found his works really brilliant and all designers should be inspired or taught by them. The use of geometry and rules becomes more intelligible by studying him. I was thrilled with his work. I hope you love it too.
