When I was cleaning up my room, I stumbled upon my favorite book of all time, Ikko Tanaka: Graphic Master by Gian Carlo Calza.

Ikko Takaka is one of the most famous Japanese graphic designers of all time. He used simple shapes with vivid colors and with all of his work, somehow, he manages to convey both, a modern feeling and a Japanese traditional feeling at the same time. With this style of his work, he completely changed Japanese graphic design and left his mark in graphic design history.

When looking over my book I realized how timeless Mr. Tanaka’s work is. All of the images in this post are from the book that I just found in a corner of my room and they still inspire me. Enjoy and I hope you are inspired too!
