Light-hearted and distinctive work by Japanese designer Toru Kase

21 March 2016

Toru Kase is a graphic designer who studied at Kuwasawa Design School in Tokyo. His playful approach that mixes type and graphics results in light-hearted and distinctive work.

Toru’s blurring of typographic design and illustration is seen in his flyers for Dinosaur Expo, an annual group exhibition held in Tokyo, and his flyer for a bookstore from 2014. His series of posters from 2014 reveal a more structured approach to layout and a great deal of commercial sensibilities.
