The mentioned period is known as the period of the Bubble Economy in Japan and this period was extremely good for business, which is reflected in the works. Various enterprises invested a lot of money on advertising and publicity which allowed the graphic designers to try out different kinds of designs.

Moreover, it was also a period when Japan saw an increase in awareness towards environmental problems, and signs of globalization started becoming visible, leading to the creation of a number of posters for international meetings and expositions influenced by these developments. In this exhibition, we have collected the works of those designers that worked closely with such developments in the society.

Through these posters, we would like the audience to enjoy the works of world-famous graphic designers and at the same time get a glimpse of the social conditions in Japan at that time.
