Creative company established in 2011 by art director, Gen Ishii.
Our art direction services vary in wide range from visual identification for advertising campaign to graphics and design, and the actual product development.
Our work style is flexible depending on the project. At times we utilize our network with other creators to form a unit, and at others join directly with our clients
or other companies to reach maximum results.
The sole code we live by is “Stay hungry, stay foolish.”
