Kazumasa Nagai: “Life”

The “broken nature” that we talked about during class made me think of forms and abstraction. It reminds me of Kazumasa Nagai’s poster designs. The forms in his posters are not portrayed in a realistic way, they resemble animals, and most importantly, they are a symbol that represents life. During class, we went through the design trends on Behance, what’s in common is that designers tend to play with viewers’ perceptions. The most common way to make things that are visually interesting is to make designs more dynamic or 3D. In the contrast, Kazumasa Nagai’s posters have a sense of flatness, one of my favorites is the poster that combined with raw pencil drawing and digital drawing to create a simplistic but also visually appealing design.
