Ian Lynam is a Tokyo-based designer operating at the intersection of graphic design, design education and design research. This lecture explores Japanese graphic design and typographic history from 1854 to 1965 and discusses Japan’s first type foundries, propaganda, speculative labor, and how one Japanese designer disrupts our understanding of design history.
