Product Description

In Graphickers (GK208), Hajime Tachibana plays a clever melody on the keyboard of typography, using printed, stretched, coiled and distorted fonts as visual elements in the design. The strap is clear plastic, so that the type and words—“Swatch Graphickers”—pop against whatever background is placed behind the watch.  The white dial is inked with an intricate, tangled design of black lines that almost look like traces of some object’s trajectory, a record of movement. Lines that curve and twist suggest shell-like, architecturally structured forms. The b&w palette is perfect for this minimalist designer, whose urbane tastes define his point of view.

Artist Biography

Hajime Tachibana

Hajime Tachibana is a Japanese graphic designer and musician. Tachibana achieved cult status in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the lead guitarist for a short-lived, widely influential Japanese New Wave music group. The band earned the admiration of the Japanese music and fashion worlds, and its songs, widely held to be seminal works in the canon of Japanese pop, have been covered by Western and non-Western bands alike. Today Tachibana is more widely known as a designer. His design work is distinguished by his typography and elegant use of graphic elements.
