2013 Nengajou

Nengajou design for 2013 – year of the Snake. In Japan, it is custom to have Kagami Mochi (鏡餅), 2 layers of round mochi rice cake,  as a decoration for the New Year. In this design, the mochi rice cake is actually the Snake, which represents the year 2013. 2013年、巳年にデザインした年賀状です。 鏡餅だと思いきゃカワイイ蛇です!!!!    


Put Up or Shut Up

  This is a design with the message Put Up or Shut Up, meaning that you either do something, take action rather than just talk and complain. I created this during a time when I had lots of ideas and things that I wanted to do. So  rather than just think about it and leave it, I made a reminder to myself to take action. 「Push Up or Shut Up」、つまり「口だけ言うじゃなく、行動しろ」という意味です。 色々なアイデアがあった時期の自分へのメッセージでした。 Buy the T-shirt (Japan)

DNS T-shirt Graphic

This was a design that I used as a print for a going away T-shirt present. One of the members in my team was leaving, and I recall when I asked him what DNS was, he drew on the board funny squiggles that was supposed to be computers. The T-shirt was meant for him to remember DNS 🙂 このデザインは退職するチームメンバーへのTシャツプレゼントです。 そのメンバーは面接時、「DNSの仕組みを説明して」という質問に、ホワイトボードに奇妙な絵を描きました。 描いた箱体はパソコンらしきもの、面接した私は思わずに笑ってしまいました(後は採用!)。 いい思い出をTシャツにしてプレゼントしました。

DTP World submission

This was a submission of a book cover design to the DTP World magazine. Designed so that the story setting and mood would be easily understood from the cover. Book title is “Kaimana Hila Blue” so used the blue sea, the Hawaiian doll and the Hibiscus as images for the cover design. The English book title is hidden under the ‘obi’, the paper ‘belt’ over the cover. ジャケットデザインはまず一目で見て、ストリーの内容がすぐ分かるように作りました。 タイトルは「カイマナヒラ・ブルー」なので、ハワイの青い海を選び、ストリーに関連づけたダンサーの人形とハワイのシンボルであるハイビスカスの写真を選びました。 帯の後ろに隠されたのは英語のタイトルです。

This was a Futsal (5-a-side football) emblem that I designed, and was later added to the team uniform. Not exactly hooligans, but the team was pretty rough. 元職場のフットサル部のユニフォームとワッペンのデザインです。


Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Poster

A OTJ (On The Job) poster while I was a graphic design student at the Digital Hollywood school (2008).
