Shintaro Ajioka 味岡伸太郎

Ajioka was born in Toyahashi City in 1949. He lives the principle expressed by the painter Takeo Yamaguchi: “If you are involved in design, your art will connect with society. Walk the line between fine art and design.”
Ajioka uses his own typefaces for all his graphic design work. To date, he has designed around 150 typefaces. In 2001, he formed the publishing house “Shun-ka-shu-to-sousho”. At that same time, he published and exhibited his contemporary art at galleries and fine art museums both in and outside of Japan. In 2016, he had an exhibit at the Aichi Triennale.
