Describe the Process to Make a Japanese Katana in the Traditional Craft
S O L U T I O N
Through extensive research online, reading books, and watching several documentaries I learned about the traditional Japanese process of making a Katana sword. My intent was to design a large-scale poster that would communicate this timeless craft in a uniquely modern and understandable way through illustrations. While also using typography, color and layout to reference historical Japanese literature.

Thanks for Viewing My Project!
As a token of appreciation for viewing, please enjoy this handcrafted Katana—not quite as real as a steel sword, but the next best thing you can get your digital paws on.
