The last show

January 2024

JAGDA’S last New Designer Award 2023 exhibition was held in Kumamoto.
As during all other exhibitions, Yago's work was exhibited along with the works of Shun Ishizuka and Kako Fujita.
This time, the theme of the visual was “the last show”. The poster, designed by Yago, plays with the word “kuma” in “Kumamoto” (that means “bear” in Japanese), and the history of Kumamoto as a part of the ancient Hi Province, the province of fire.
