toyko-based designers yosuke uehara + yoshie watanabe have completed the ‘kigi exhibition‘ on show at ginza graphic gallery in shibuya, japan. the installation coincides with the establishment of their new company and will introduce the projects that the two professionals have been involved in since their 1999 partnership. the title ‘kigi’ means ‘trees’, which are a symbol of creation, and the pair chose this name with the hope that their creative ‘tree’ will one day grow into an abundant ‘forest’. the work on display spans across all genres and looks into new approaches in graphic illustrations to date.
