  • Hallo, ich bin Aki aus Tokyo.
    I moved to Berlin and currently working as a freelance designer (web design, illustration, graphic design).

    As an illustrator, I made some illustrations (collaboration with Yuka Nakazawa) for Yonex’s snowboard (http://www.yonex.co.jp/products/snowboards/falsie.html) and the previous website of Opening Ceremony Japan.

    I love making some artworks by my own hands.
    I am a member of a fablab in Tokyo and have skills of silk screen printing and laser cutting.

    As another creative activity, I make bow-tie like brooches with used clothes and remnants.
    I sell my works online and have experience of a workshop of making bow-tie brooches.
