    2006 - 2008

    From 2006 to 2008, I art directed the seasonal catalogues of “Johnbull”, a fashion brand based in Okayama, Japan. From the 2007 Autumn/Winter collection, I started working not only on the catalogues, but also taking part in total art direction of the brand, such as the exhibition, DM, magazines and so on.
    I derived my inspiration from the theme of the seasonal show given by the designer, and created the total visual image. I blended and applied the visual image into 2D graphics, and produced the catalogues including photo shoots, and the design of the exhibition space. These series of experiences have given me a much broader view, and made me realize I shouldn't be confined just to the field of  graphic design. I think these experiences have became a foundation stance of my careers.
