Portfolio of the week

September 25, 2018


Who are you?

I am a Japanese graphic designer who used to be based in Tokyo and currently based in Berlin, Germany.

I mainly design books, besides magazines, identities, advertisement, and more.


What is your next creative project?

I am working on some Japanese books projects and some brochures for concerts now. And planning for a self-initiated project inspired by life in Berlin and Latin typesetting.



 How would you describe your work?

I design thinking deeply about each text content, then progressing with the design by interpreting it sensuously or philosophically.

I like to explore and experiment with typesetting to create beautiful, playful, and new designs.

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

I worked for Tobufune, Japanese book design agency until last June, so my previous boss Shohei Oguchi influenced me most directly. Also, I am always inspired by many great graphic designers…like Bunpei Yorifuji, Masayoshi Nakajo, Dick Bruna, Alexander Rodchenko...in both aesthetic and philosophical way.



What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

I am glad to be taken anything away. I think it might be interesting that Japanese typesetting mixed with Latin typesetting or using way of illustrations. Personally, my wedding project succeed to make our guests enjoy, and it was amusing, so I am delighted if someone gets inspired by it.





What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I love it because I could make my website neat and beautiful without difficulty. You can handle it sensuously even if you don’t know about coding or programming very well. I was a little bit in a hurry to make my site, and I tried other several website making services, but I always hit the wall at some points. On the other hand, Portfoliobox led me to a goal very smoothly. It knows users insight very well.
