Andy Hau was inspired by the architecture of Tokyo for this design

"Inspired by the architecture of New York, the neon colours of Toyko and the vintage Japanese posters for Godzilla, I created a poster that celebrates the exuburance of the original films," explains designer Andy Hau. We love the playful, almost game-like feel to this one.
