Um. I was asked by Shigeo Fukuda, President of the Japan Graphic Designers Association, to submit a poster for display in conjunction with the Summit of G8 Nations in Toyako, Hokkaido, with the themes of “the Toyako Summit” and “the environment”.
Actually, my good friend, retired designer, and Canadian design legend Theo Dimson was asked, and he sent them to me.
Normally I am wary of the value of designers creating posters for things such as this, but on the other hand, I was pleased to be asked and I thought it couldn’t hurt.
The whole thing being international and all, and taking place in Japan, I decided to have no words on the poster at all, except for the required logo, at the bottom.
It’s … is it obvious? It seems obvious to me, in an interpretive kind of way. So I’m not going to explain it.
There were also fans involved, for fanning yourself during global warming (which seems like rather a good idea), and if I ever get mine, I will post pics.
