Recently I visited Tokyo for an interview of job hunting. It was pretty sudden happening, so I worked all night and created my latest portfolio. But it was actually lucky happening, because that company's apply deadline has already ended, however they saw my design website and this blog, and called me! It made me really happy and I'm glad that now I have this blog. It's actually fun to write now. I feel like I'm publishing small personal design magazine. One bad thing using this blogger is kinda difficult to receive comments, since not much Japanese user have Google account. Well, if you are reader of my blog and also having a Google account, feel free to leave your comments, anytime! (I also figured out that people can create Google account, even though they don't have Google email address. Please go Sign in button from Google top page and create account if you are interested in.)
Anyway, today's topic is Swiss graphic designer, Max Huber(1919-92). When I went to Tokyo, I visited ggg (Ginza Graphic Gallery) and saw his exhibit. It was beautiful exhibit. Even though his designs are old, it looks not old at all. I think his choice of nice typefaces and limited colors made them look modern even now. Especially i liked his collaboration works with Jazz Artists, his style matched well with Jazzy atmosphere. I didn't expect that I can go this exhibition, but I'm happy that I could go and check it. I especially liked golf design image above.
This show will be closed on June 29th, which is actually tomorrow, but if you are living in Tokyo and interested in, it's graphic designer's one of must-watch show, I think. However, now Japanese magazine, Idea, has special feature about Max Huber, so if you are tough to go, that's the alternative plan for you.
