Then today I went to the Ginza Graphic Gallery (ggg) to check out Max Huber’s exhibition. If you don’t know already, Max Huber is a Swiss graphic designer and a 20th century leader in the industry, famously known for his Italian works across advertising and publishing.

The exhibition featured two floors of outstanding graphic works from Huber, an absolutely wonderful spectacle to look at, so glad I came back for the second time after it was closed last weekend. Extremely well presented work in the exhibition and Huber’s use of typography and it’s boldness combined with choices of colour and using colour overlays specifically were just brilliant. All of his posters were upstairs, with his smaller works including his library of book covers were shown downstairs. I picked up one of the exhibition books as this was far too good to miss out on. I knew about Huber before, but after going to this exhibition, I will definitely be reading up more about him as well taking influence from his works in future projects when I’m working with typography and colour closely combined.
