My current job

We support the design of the visions for the future and next-generation social systems and the launch of new businesses. The Future Creation Institute, to which I belong, is composed not only of designers but also members with various specialized skills in marketing, digital, spatial, branding, and other fields. We have a wide range of businesses from strategic visioning to research and analysis and social implementation.

How I spent my student life

To this day, I still can't forget the nightly discussions we had right up until the deadline to come up with ideas and select the best one to win a prize in the design competition, not to mention the production.
Thanks to these discussions, we spent all night long making models. I realized the appeal of creating the framework of a proposal, such as a vision or concept, and I enjoyed those days as a student. This has led to my current work.

Messages for prospective students

I think it's one thing to dream of turning what you "love" into a career, but do you have something you "love"? When I was in high school, I had nothing. After I entered the Department of Industrial Design, I learned about the wide range of design, including idea generation and concept development, and I found what I "love". This university is full of design enthusiasts. Please come and find something you "love" while being inspired.
