The Puti Trees
By Laure Joliet / Published by Dwell

Nod Young, a young ambitious designer who started his own design firm in China called Khaki Creative created these posters as a typographic interpretation of two poems quoted from The Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch, the original Zen classic that dates back almost 1,500 years.

In his own words: "The poems teach us not to believe all that which exists, not even the reflection of ourselves in a mirror...It is difficult to achieve true creative freedom because we are overly concerned with aesthetics and meaning. This is why I especially enjoy these poems. I have used basic visual elements and colors to create a typographical work that represents my interpretation of design and Buddhism."

These posters are currently on sale through L'Affiche Moderne.  20% off when you enter Promo20 at checkout.
