Period 2022.5.27(Fri) — 2023.10.31(Tue)

In this project, designers will research typography found in the neighborhood of the museum and other areas of Hiroshima City, as well as in the museum itself and in materials related to the museum, and create new typography that makes the most of these characteristics. This project aims to utilize these typographic designs in some of the displays within the museum, mainly in areas where additions and functional expansions are being planned as part of the museum's renewal.
