The 207th Exhibition Minoru Niijima: Interaction of Colors and Fonts August 6(Wed.) - 30(Sat.),2003

For the past few years, my designing activities have run parallel in three areas: actual production, education and research. I'm being rather greedy but by moving in these three areas at the same time, they each influence each other. While it is physically taxing, it has produced good results mentally. With the pressure of an exhibition at such a wonderful place as ggg, I thought I would like to somehow have these three areas take shape. The theme of the exhibition, "Interaction of Colors and Fonts," combine actual production and research. Surprisingly, we have not been able to talk about color and fonts which are like air and water to graphic design at the same time. I therefore I established an "equivalent" vector and applied it to my work. It was a rather basic issue but with the establishment of the "equivalent" vector, the complexity immediately increased and I could really enjoy myself. For works, I primarily showed posters. For education, I showed the graduation works of students from my seminar. During the exhibition, I received a lot of comments from people. The comments especially from young people just starting to study design gave me the most encouragement.
