Sanday Mainichi (サンデー毎日)


Takashi Kono was a Japanese graphic designer who established his own unique world by combining Western modernism with Japanese elegance. His designs convey insights and messages within simplicity. During the war, he challenged the fusion of photography and graphics through editorial design in the foreign propaganda magazine "NIPPON." In the 1950s, influenced by television, publishing became popularized, and he worked on magazine designs such as "Sunday Mainichi." Additionally, he played a central role as a design committee member for the Tokyo Olympics and the Osaka World Expo, while also contributing to the improvement of the design industry through endeavors such as the establishment of the Japan Advertising Art Association and serving on the executive committee of the World Design Conference.
