About Us


Founded in 2023, the East Asian Graphics Archive (EAGA) is an ever-growing archive of contemporary graphic design ephemera sourced from designers across East Asia and the diaspora. Inspired by other grassroots efforts to document localized visual trends, the EAGA aims to develop a centralized platform dedicated to celebrating and preserving the richness of East Asian visual cultures and the intertwined legacies of the region.

Using community-based archival methods, the EAGA strives to steward a broader appreciation and understanding of trailblazing graphic, typographical, and artistic practices from across East Asia.



Curation


The EAGA team sources all featured ephemera from various online and print sources. All artworks featured in the EAGA are:
    ➀ Graphic art, including but not limited to digital art, computer graphics, typography, and print;
    ➁ Created or designed by an individual who claims ancestry or heritage in an East Asian country (China, Japan, the Koreas, or Taiwan), or a studio/agency located in an East Asian country; and
    ➂ Made in the contemporary age.
