According to Yuki Kikutake, “supergraphics” are a recent trend of site-specific design that connects people and places. They decorate everyday scenes, from construction sites and public spaces, to in and around buildings. How can a place or space be changed through its re-evaluation by graphic design? With an innovative but simultaneously subtle viewpoint fostered by her global experiences, Kikutake focuses not only on attractive, comfortable spaces but also places and objects that give a negative impression. This book features around 20 of her works and cross-genre designs that can serve as a guideline for future projects, from landmarks and trains, to product and book design.
