TOKYO’s 62nd birthday is coming up! This means the biggest and craziest ARTS party of the year is also getting closer. And we need an equally amazing poster.
TOKYO is now looking for someone to visualize “Cryptids of the Palace” into a poster. The posters will be one of our main advertising tools for the Maskerad and will spread far and wide around our campus and other locations. Once a Maskerad poster is printed it will forever remain as an archived piece of TOKYO’s maskerad history.
