From Switzerland to Japan: YamanoteYamanote praises Tokyo's metro
As if we needed another reason to move our existence to Tokyo the YamanoteYamanote poster project welcomes us on a typographic ride all through the downtown Tokyo by train.
The brainchild of Julien Wulff and Julien Mercier aims to explore all the 29 stations of the Yamanote line that loops through downtown Tokyo by creating two posters for each station presenting two different visions that translate in poster format the culture of each local neighbourhood.
Then Wulff and Mercier, these two Tokyo-based Swiss graphic designers who fell in love with Tokyo carefully select a venue in close vicinity to each station to showcase their one-time small-scale exhibition.
The project is still running and YamanoteYamanote has already presented the 10 double visions of Tokyo line of dreams.
