Wonderschone omleidingsbordjes, bij elkaar getapet en gesneden door Shuetsu Sato. Stationsassistent van het drukste station ter wereld, Shinjuku Station.
“Sato explains that he was initially given a megaphone to direct crowds. However, he found it to be an ineffective tool that was ignored by most. So with a few rolls of duct tape and a craft knife he took it upon himself to create some eye-catching signage.
Over the years, a cultish appreciation has grown for Shuetsu Sato’s work with fans dubbing his typography as Shuetsu-tai (Shuetsu font). Fashion brands like United Arrows and WEGO have even commissioned the security guard to create custom typography for them.”
