I stopped by the Creation Gallery G8 in Ginza the other day for the “86th Art Directors Club Annual Awards” exhibition. I always enjoy going to this to see all of the interesting ad work and TV commercials I don’t see here in Japan, and this year I really liked watching the winning works in the hybrid section (sort of a mixed-media category).
The show also has me thinking that I need to start buying THE NEW YORK TIMES on Sundays, just to get a hold of the Sunday magazine — a bunch of their covers and layouts were awards winners, and looked amazing. Also, great to see Canadian magazine THE WALRUS get some attention. You still have a few more days to catch the exhibition (until February 29).
