How can a place or space be changed through its re-evaluation by graphic design?
According to Yuki Kikutake, “supergraphics” are a recent trend of site-specific design that connects people and places. They decorate everyday scenes, from construction sites and public spaces, to in and around buildings.
With an innovative but simultaneously subtle viewpoint fostered by her global experiences, Japanese graphic designer Kikutake focuses not only on attractive, comfortable spaces but also on places and objects that give a negative impression.
This book features around twenty of Kikutake’s works and cross-genre designs that can serve as a guideline for future projects, from landmarks and trains to product and book design.
