This book explores the theories and philosophical approaches to design adopted by Hara Kenya, one of the leading graphic designers in Japan. He pays tribute to his mentors by using often overlooked Japanese icons and images within his work, while simultaneously representing a new generation of designers. He touches upon the importance of ’emptiness’ in the visual and philosophical aspects of Japan, demonstrating it to readers through the curation of extensive examples of existing work.

Kenya Hara is one of the leading graphic designers in Japan, holding multiple positions including those of Professor at Tokyo’s Musashino Art University, President of Nippon Design Center and Art Director of Muji.
