ATG poster gallery
Sat Dec 13 11:07:21 EST 2008
Dear Will and Martin,
I don't know of any compiled list of graphic designers for the ATG
posters (I wish that I did!), but have the feeling that a little
sleuthing in period graphic design magazines, graphic design annuals
and published poster collections would turn up a number of posters
and the names of the artists responsible for them.
A few that I can fill in for you, thanks to the catalogue for the
1960-nendai Guraffizumu exhibition organized by the Printing Museum
in Tokyo in 2002:
Shinjuku dorobo nikki: Design by Yokoo Tadanori
Bara no soretsu: Design by Asakura Setsu
Hatsukoi jigoku-hen: Design by Uno Akira
Ninja bugeicho: Design and art direction by Higaki Kiroku (Noriroku:
??), illustration by Shirato Sanpei
Shinju-ten no amajima: Design by Awazu Kiyoshi
Rengoku eroika: Design by Higaki Kiroku (Noriroku?)
Nikudan: Design by Kuri Yoji
Dansei josei: Design by Toho Art Bureau
My guess, in general, would be that for many of the films, the staff
member listed as "art director/ bijutsu" would have been responsible
for the poster design. But perhaps not always?
All the best,
