A poster indispensable to corporate public relations activities in the past as well. Prior to the war, we ordered from painters and designers active overseas, hired an advertising agency called a designer, and put effort into production. This exhibition will introduce the work focusing on the designers who worked on the design of the posters and calendars of NYK Line. Lectures, workshops and events for summer vacation children will also be held.
