Yokoland

yokoland graphic designYoung Norwegian designers Aslak Gurholt Rønsen and Espen Friberg, who have been collaborating on projects since they met in high school at the age of 16, inhabit Yokoland. Together they create design, illustration and art that are idyllic, humorous and poetic without ever being mawkish some of which has been featured in Hidden Track. Being one of the most inventive design studios of today, Yokoland skillfully blends their Scandinavian approach to design into their work melding elegant humor and human touch, exploring new ways of creating graphic design solutions to stunning effect.

This book takes you on their adventures and features the best of Yokoland’s work containing a range of their as yet relatively unknown work that brings different styles and surprising contrasts in a highly original way. Yokoland’s distinctive design can be aptly summarized by their record label’s company slogan: “We’re so underground that we’re almost in China”.
