Designer Okuyama Taiki encourages you to “play freely” with his experimental posters

Tokyo-based graphic designer Okuyama Taiki has created these unusual, minimalist posters that experiment with shape, colour and typography. The creations are catalogued on his blog, Noichigo Source, where the designer makes all the posters available for people to download in .psd or .ai format for people to “play freely”.

This pick’n’mix attitude is mimicked in Okuyama’s work with his sporadic use of abstract icons with the odd flash of type that come together to make odd graphic illustrations. Using squishy characters, cartoon-like symbols and familiar images like mountains, it’s a pure mish mash of the designer’s imagination. In recent months, Okuyama has shifted towards making his posters into gifs which pile even more madness onto the canvas.
