A Japanese Graphic Designer Whose Still Lifes Look Almost Like They’re Moving
Moodboards at the ready: Here’s a body of work you’re probably going want to bookmark from beginning to end. Mina Tabei is a Japanese graphic designer and art director whose portfolio — which spans everything from CD design to still life compositions to frame-worthy flyers and book covers deserving of display — feels at once playful and scientific. With echoes of kinetic sculpture, Eames toy designs, and the colorful, graphic work of Karel Martens, Tabei’s work plays with color, light, and balance in a way that feels dimensional, fresh, and a touch science fair-adjacent. A few works are for sale here, but check out a more complete peek below.
