There’s so much work in Japanese designer Yuma Harada’s portfolio, I hereby give you permission to while away your Friday looking through his website – you won’t be disappointed and maybe even a “wow!” will escape your lips.
Establishing his own studio called the UMA/Design Farm back in 2007, Yuma has designed a multitude of books, graphics, exhibitions and more. The volume is impressive but the quality is even more so, with a style that’s striking and elegant.
In particular, the identity for Japanese hairdresser’s Bouclettes is simply marvellous with lovely frosty shades of peach and aqua combined with minimal lettering. It’s unlike any other hairdresser branding I’ve ever seen, which only adds to the success of the work.
Enough chit chat now though, it’s time for you to start gawping at the rest of Yuma’s excellent work. Be sure to check out his website to see even more.
