Remembering Shigeo Fukuda (1932 – 2009)


I ran into Shigeo Fukuda’s work as a student in design school. At first glance I just thought “oh just another old-school designer”. But after looking closer at his work and spending a few more moments in a book I found in the library I developed a deep appreciation for him. As a sculptor, artist and designer his work challenges the norm visual norm. Coined a master of deception and compared to the likes of Escher and Dali, Fukuda is extrmely well known in Japan and his impossible objects, ambiguous sculptures, distorted projections and anamorphic art can be seen all over the world.

“Shigeo Fukuda passed away on January 11th, 2009 at the age of 76. He was a master of creating optical illusions, simplistic logos, and designing bold and engaging posters. In 1987 Fukuda was the first Japanese designer to be inducted in the Art Directors Club (ADC) Hall of Fame.”
