Japanese Security Guard Creates Utilitarian Art with Tape

I don’t read or speak Japanese so this won’t have as much information as I’d like, but the gist of this story is that a security guard working in a Japanese subway station started to create beautiful signs using duct tape. He uses a lot of clean lines and his technique includes careful measurement, cutting, and planning. The font style that he’s created is clean and makes great use of a simple every day object!
