Another genius of Japanese poster design. Ikko Tanaka established his own studio in Tokyo in 1963, and is credited with developing Muji's identity, where he worked as art director until 2001. You wouldn't believe how much this guy has been ripped-off over the years by other "poster designers". This is the real deal; clean, effortless design created with a true illustrator's hand.
