This fall TOKYO celebrates its 61st birthday – with the most breathtaking and exciting theme! TOKYO is now looking for someone to visualize “Paradise under Construction” into a poster. The posters will be used as one of our main advertising tools for the Maskerad and spread far and wide around our campus. Once a Maskerad poster is printed it will forever remain as an archived piece of TOKYO’s history.
You can get inspired with the official theme video:
