My current job
I am currenly involved in user insight research, concept creation, product design, graphic design, and copywriting in product development for beverages. Recently, besides packaged beverages, development for "drinking styles" to meet various needs that have diversified over time has increased; UX and UI design have also been added to the business. The number of international projects is increasing, and creatives are being transmitted to the world.
How I spent my student life
Since I was a student, I have been interested in visualizing concepts, and undertook creating works from initial concept to finished product. Also, having experienced many drinking scenes, I learned a lot about the joys of drinking with people, and I think that has been very useful to my life as a working adult even now. At university, there are many opportunities to collaborate and make something with people across departments and grades. Working with people who are interested in creatives across various fields has been extremely stimulating.
