Shinnoske, an Osaka-based Japanese designer, believes graphic design is a kind of information architecture and has developed a personal project called Elementism Studies. Hung Lam, a Hong Kong graphic designer, intrigued by this design thinking, has made a close study on Shinnoske's works.

Is there a design belief behind a design house? What are the roots of this design belief? What are Chinese characters to a Japanese designer? Elementism2 is a personal design diary documenting Hung Lam's observations, conversations, activities, reflections, and new findings during his 60-day internship at Shinnoske's design studio in September and October 2002. The result is a highly cultural experience. 

Hung's internship programme was sponsored by Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan.


LAM Hung

Graphic designer born in Hong Kong in 1973. Since the late 90s, Hung has been actively participating in cultural design exchange programmes, including the Nagoya Design Do! International Young Designer Workshop held in Japan in 1998 and the Oullium International Young Designer Workshop held in Korea in 1999. In 2002, he took part in an internship programme under Shinnoske Sugisaki, which led to the publication of this book. Hung’s works have been collected by the Suntory Musuem in Japan, Plakatsammlung Museum fur Gestaltung in Zurich, and the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.
