The Nature of Japanese Graphics. Dissertation 2018.

Thesis How has history and culture evolved and advanced Japanese aesthetic and graphic design practice?

Personal project. After spending a year on writing my Dissertation for my BA (Hons), I decided to make it physical, make it into a book. I delivered it to my family and friends who wanted to read it, as well as everyone who contributed to the text or the process of making the Dissertation possible.


The design is inspired by the fragility of Japanese design, which explains the tracing paper as the cover material. It is also coloured by Japanese elegance mixed with minimalism, and traditional Japanese colours.
