Exploring the Possibilities of Graphic Design through Offset Printing

Graphic Trial, started in 2006, is going to celebrate its 12th exhibition this year. Thanks to all your support, Graphic Trial has become one of the most significant events in the Printing Museum.

The theme for this year's exhibition is "Fusion". "Fusion," meaning the merging of different elements into a union, can be interpreted in various ways, such as a fusion of ink, paper, and printing plate, and, in a broader sense, as a fusion of wisdom and techniques. This year, we have invited four creators at different stages of their careers, including a world-class master, an up-and-coming designer working globally, and innovative graphic designers with distinctive styles. All the participating creators have explored what "Fusion" can achieve in their poster works using various kinds of printing techniques.

The final showpieces demonstrate how the combinations of offset printing and various types of processing can open up multidimensional potentials.

Lastly, I would like to express our gratitude to all the people who helped us to create this exhibition.
