Yuni Yoshida is a 34-year old graphic designer and art director. She’s made a name for herself by art directing various campaigns for department stores like La Foret Harajuku and Parco, as well as CD jackets for J-Pop acts like AKB48 and Kaela Kimura. Her work often features female models in surreal, dreamlike settings that make you look, and then look a little closer. And now, for the first time, her large body of work is meticulously recreated and is being put on display in a retrospective at Laforet Museum in Harajuku.
Yoshida studied at Joshibi University of Art and Design before making her way through several ad agencies including working under Takuya Onuki where, it can be argued, she developed her unique perspective. In 2007 she went solo but had no trouble establishing a roster of big-name clients. I wrote about her for DMIJ last month where you can see more of her work. Her exhibition at Laforet Museum goes through November 24th.
