Akio Okumura is known for logos familiar to all, such as those for Rohto Pharmaceutical and Ezaki Glico.
This exhibition will validate the past life and works of Akio Okumura, and feature the many products of his activities as a visiting professor at Kyoto University, including image strategies for university research activities and visual identities, such as the spatial designs and logo for the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application which are famous throughout the world, and his unique design education which has garnered attention from many different fields.

How do designers live together with their work?
One hint will be given by introducing the 40-year career and future of Akio Okumura.
The exhibition will not just feature his various activities and designs. For this event, part of the gallery will be set aside as a research area where visitors can see Akio Okumura actually at work, and interact with him.
