ORDINARY PEOPLE: Everyday, Graphics, and Calendar

Print Gallery Tokyo is hosting an exhibition “ORDINARY PEOPLE: Everyday, Graphics, and Calendar” by Design Studio ORDINARY PEOPLE (Seoul, Korea).

This design Studio consists of ex-university classmates. In 2006, these graphic design students started a project called “We make posters”. During the course of this project, they formed their design studio. Currently, they initiate and manage projects such as “Everyday Graphic Calendar”, “1xn—Print Screen”, and “24 OPEN”. They also work on commercial projects with MBC (Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation), National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Korea, Asia Culture Center, SM Entertainment, and many others.

The exhibition at Print Gallery will focus on the “Everyday Graphic Calendar”; a page-a-day calendar ORDINARY PEOPLE has published since 2015. Designers of the studio collaboratively created these calendars that features various themes and expressions, day-by-day or page-by-page. This show will also display other projects and products from their self-initiated project “Peopolét brand, booklets, zines, and fashion items such as T-shirts. Many items from this exhibition will be for sale.

On Saturday, February 2nd, there will be a panel discussion by young designers from Japan and Korea, titled “Glimpsing the Everyday Life of Designers in Japanese and Korean Calendars: Day-to-Day Graphic Design”. Designers from ORDINARY PEOPLE will represent Korea, and Jujiro Maki and Tézzo Suzuki will be the designers from Japan (Moderator: Madoka Nishi /Idea magazine).
