This fall TOKYO celebrates its 58th birthday – with the most breathtaking, scandalous theme! We are now looking for someone to visualize “Acid Versailles” 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:
