Minoru Niijima and Education of Visual Communication Design

Museum Current

Niijima was one of the first designers who studied design theory developed by Paul Rand (1914-96) at Yale University. After returning to Japan, he pioneered the application of Rand's visual semantics in his work, which focused on graphic design. In 1999 he joined the Department of Visual Communication Design at Musashino Art University and devoted himself to design education, mentoring numerous talented designers at the forefront of various fields. In this exhibition we trace his works and thoughts in graphic design through reexamination of his posters, bookdesign, and corporate image materials. The exhibition also shows a cornucopia of works by some of Niijima's talented students from the Department of Visual Communication Design, who strove to follow or surpass his principles.
