At Studio Kura Walter and Francisca want to make a graphic study of the Japanese culture, analyzing the contrast between the rural and urban life, looking for unique characteristics and common patterns present in daily life.
From that basis and according to what we will observe during our stay, they want to make a graphic proposal using different techniques, combining printing tools, typography, and illustration.
