Reason Behind Forms

nosigner-100-gadgets-iphone-1

I’ve been a longtime fan and supporter of the work of Nosigner (aka¬†Eisuke Tachikawa, whose monicker is now the name of his firm), covering many of his early works in my “On Design” column and elsewhere, and it makes me happy to see that he’s gotten to a point where he’s headlining his own show at the Ginza Graphic Gallery (“Reason Behind Forms,” running this month until October 31). One of the main installations in the show is what you see pictured, which represents all of the technology that has been engulfed within the iPhone. There’s more to see in this Spoon & Tamago post.

Ikushinsha Signage by Nosigner

Johnny over at the Spoon & Tamago blog was right to feature the signage by Nosigner for an Ikushinsha cram school. I definitely agree, using a ruler as a graphic element in that environment is both thematically sound and visually pleasing.
