Big time graphic designer


“Staying in the mold is not the answer. Don’t be afraid to get out of it.” Masayoshi Nakajo, a big-time Japanese graphic designer advised us not to be too particular about your design at a talk session that was held at G8 gallery in April. His advice is helpful for those who are making something.

Nakajo has been leading the design industry especially on typography, graphic design and fashion editorial design for many years. He is already 78 years old but is still going strong and what he designs is cool.

We are likely to play it safe and design something that we think will look okay to the eyes to majority. However, this will lead us to ending up creating just another thing. We need to get out of our comfort zone.

“Something that is just refined and elegant isn’t necessarily attractive enough. It can only go so far.” Nakajo added. “An interesting and appealing design should slightly deviate from the norm. Don’t try to complete your artwork to a T. Always think and design outside the box.

Basically, I understand what he is saying but it’s not easy to practice it. What makes him different from other designers is that he owns an incredible adaptability. Maybe, he is a genius in his own right.
