(Foreword) "We think to make use of "Living typography" Typography means design consisting of letters chiefly. We always engaged in ad, and printing for enterprise in the field of typography. However we tried to think that we can make use of typography not only on above mentioned but also on clothing, food and housing that everybody needs in daily life, as called shirt, bread, wallpaper, curtain and etc.
We are able to have various kinds of idea when we look at again living utensils through the eyes of typographer. Since we design and publish our works regularly we want everyone to use it. This is the reason why we hold T-shirt-show as the first time. We hope many people come to see this show and try of you are willing to put on it we are sure that these works would be alive. We named our group "Typo-Eye" after the eyes of typographer. We would be happy if you comment on our plan. We would refer to it for next time.”
