These days, social media has increasingly become the most familiar media outlet to the public. However, printed posters are also a powerful form of media that has, for centuries, contributed to the cultural formation of societies.
In our cities, event posters are ephemeral with a very short life span — only on display during announcement periods, then subsequently removed.
Though this exhibit was born out of a desire to stand surrounded by all of my typography work, my ultimate goal was to create an exhibition that everyone could enjoy.
Massa AquaFlow is an artist, graphic designer, and typographer based in Okinawa, Japan.
Massa AquaFlow firmly believes that event flyers inundate our cities, thus functioning as design competitions. Spurred by this reality, Massa AquaFlow focuses his creative energies on designing posters and flyers for Reggae events.
Massa AquaFlow draws inspiration from Jamaican Reggae posters and record jackets, Ukiyo-e, late 19th to early 20th-century European posters, and graffiti and tattoo art.
