  • Hiroshima Appeals 2022 poster

Hiroshima Appeals is a project run by JAGDA Hiroshima
(the Japan Graphic Designers Association Hiroshima branch),
the Hiroshima Peace Creation Fund, and the Hiroshima International Cultural Foundation.
With the goal of promoting peace at home and abroad, graphic designers work voluntarily
to produce a poster that communicates “Hiroshima’s Spirit” more powerfully than words alone.
The first poster, entitled “Burning Butterflies”, was created by Yusaku Kamekura in 1983,
and a new poster was produced each year for eight years. The posters were exhibited in
a nationwide tour called the Peace Poster Exhibition. Internationally, they gained prominence|
through display in the Atomic Bomb Exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland in 1985, and
the “Hiroshima: A Message for Peace among People” exhibition that toured Europe in 1997.
The annual poster initiative was reinstated in 2005 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of
the end of World War II. TAKEO Co., Ltd. provides the poster paper.

For 2022, graphic designer Kashiwa Sato created a poster entitled “NO NUKES NO WAR.” 
His profile (in English) and comments (in Japanese) can be found on the JAGDA Hiroshima website.
Paper: ARAVEAL-FS ultrawhite 1091X788 S/G 151g/m2
Printing process: silk screen printing 2 color
