Ikko Tanaka (1930–2002) was an influential Japanese graphic designer who combined Japanese tradition with the International Typographic Style to form a style of his own. He’s most known for this 1981 poster for a Nihon Buyo dance performance, in which he created an abstract geisha using basic geometric forms placed on a simple grid.
