The Hero Within Us All

This project features a book and poster designed to accompany an exhibition of the posters that have advertised acclaimed director Akira Kurosawa’s films over the decades. The layout of the book places an emphasis on the graphic nature and bold colors featured in the posters, while not overwhelming them. The pacing and layout are designed to reflect Kurosawa’s style as a director, while vertical typography is a nod to the native language of the films.
