This silkscreen-style design was created for the Japanese street food festival's second year. In keeping with the event’s simple, playful spirit, we opted for a more minimalist look by focusing on two contrasting colours—pink and blue—and two graphic components: a Maneki character and a Japanese typeface. The bold treatment of these two elements gave them a softer, somewhat simplified look.
