One does not need to visit an actual museum to see thoughtful arrangements of impeccable design, for the Shiro to Kuro Gallery is a simple type and click away.
The Internet retrospective is curated based on online design finds, but it exhibits black and white projects only. The website is also called Shirotokuro, which comes from a literal merging of "shiroi" and "kuroi," which in Japanese are "black" and "white." Bringing together the best monochromatic creations, the Shiro to Kuro Gallery includes print, typography, packaging, branding, illustration, product and graphic design.
