A guide to the graphic blood that flows in the visual arteries of Tokyo. Graffiti, posters, neon lighting, street art, colour schemes, perspectives and forms are just some of the graphic elements collated as inspiration in these hip sourcebooks for graphic designers and visual creatives. Organized around structure, communication, problem solving and originality - all problems that drive design itself - but with the raw edge of organic development. Design is site specific; the flavour of each city is tasted through the vast variety of its visual elements that can be called graphic design in its widest sense. Paired with a volume examining New York (ISBN 2-88046-767-5), this title emphasizes the site-specific nature of design as a city's lifeblood, contrasting east and west.
