The reason why I chose the School of Design

In high school, I loved drawing and cars and dreamed of being a car designer. My art club teacher at the time knew about my interest and introduced me to the School of Design at Kyushu University. This led me to participate in an open campus event. At this event, I was able to learn about the programs available at the School of Design and feel the atmosphere of the campus, from which I was absolutely convinced I wanted to study here.

My most memorable class

A temporary class called "Dynamics Design" stood out to me. In this class, we created sculptures with a sense of movement and dynamism in 3D software and exhibited them in a virtual space. It was fascinating to draw inspiration from living creatures and translate it into abstract sculptures. This kind of special class is sometimes provided as a temporary subject, which is one of the exciting aspects of Geiko.

My student life

I was part of a club called “2ken”, where we created experiential installation art at the Geiko Festival. Many students at Geiko belong to clubs that contribute to the Geiko Festival. Also, I love cars. In my second year, I bought a car that I had long been admiring. I’ve also developed an interest in motorcycles, and now I live surrounded by six-wheelers. On my days off, I enjoy driving, travelling with my friends, and doing maintenance and modifications on them.

Message to prospective students

Each student of Geiko is passionate about their activities. Geiko is a place where you can learn about what you love, enjoy it, and immerse yourself in it. There are various methods for the entrance exam to the School of Design, so I encourage you to research and take on the challenge.
