From the web site for the Art Director's Club: "Strong, clean, and impactful are the best descriptives you could use to describe Ikko Tanaka's work. They are universal images, honed with a fastidious eye: finding the natural flow of photographs in a book spread, steadying the central point of a corporate symbol so the mind retains every detail, and enriching the typographic and illustrative forces of a poster into a pure, homogeneous form."
