Shin Matsunaga, World Design Expo - Nagoya, Japan, 1989

Born in Tokyo in 1940 Matsunaga studied design at Tokyo University and began a career as an advertising designer for Shiseido Co., Ltd. In 1982 Matsunaga reached nearly legendary status in Japan's design milieu for his design of Visual Constitution of Japan, a book design with such visually appealing cover and graphics that it became a national best seller.

Since the late 1970's Matsunaga has exhibited his works abroad, receiving a Gold Medal for his poster designs at the Unites States-Japan Graphic Design Exhibition in New York (1978, 1981), a Gold Medal at the International Poster Biennale in Warsaw, Poland (1988), and the American Clio Award for his package designs (1989). His graphic design has become the subject of numerous solo exhibitions in Poland, the United States, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Belgium and Slovenia
