Ryohei Kojima

I am excited by my recent discovery of award-winning Japanese designer, Ryohei Kojima. Ryohei worked at Light Publicity Ltd,  Japan’s first creative agency, for many years before opening his own studio in 1975. Like Charles Harper, he was a master at crafting beautiful imagery by deconstructing his subjects down to their simplest forms.

These are really great, thanks for sharing! I’m especially digging the one in the bottom left with the eye.

I do want to make one comment on the blog – I love everything you post but am always disappointed that the images don’t link to larger versions of themselves. Assuming you do have larger versions of the images you post, it would be great to see them and really appreciate some of the detail.

Love Ryohei’s work… There is a true east modernism feel in it. Great share.
