Practical side of dyeing — 1 / 染めることの実用性 1

“Imprimatura” experiment done / Imprimatura 実験、結果

“No Nukes+Peace”, Back / “No Nukes+Peace,” ウラ

“No Nukes + Peace” Front / “No Nukes + Peace” オモテ

↓ The design “sketches” below are, after all, sketches. The “real work,” on its front side, looks like this, somehow. I said “somehow,” because my camera is not good enough to reproduce the “glitters” of the silver “No Nukes” message. … Continue reading

デザイン略画の例 / Samples of design sketches
