Shigeo Fukuda was a highly regarded Japanese graphic designer and poster artist who worked internationally. His work is in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, among other places. After World War II, he became interested in the minimalist Swiss Style of graphic design, and graduated from Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 1956. The New York Times described how Fukuda's posters "distilled complex concepts into compelling images of logo-simplicity". In 1987, Fukuda was inducted into the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame in New York City, which described him as "Japan's consummate visual communicator", making him the first Japanese designer chosen for this recognition.
