Art Director, iyamadesign inc.
I was born in 1967 and graduated from the Tama Art University in 1992. I started a career in advertising at Nippon Design Center the same year. My major clients at the time were TOYOTA, ISETAN (department store) and TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting system television). In the five years working at NDC, I learned design basics, then moved to another company. I started out as a sole proprietorship in 2000. While I was independent I tried to further polish my design skill set. I met many great clients at the same time. My first solo exhibition was in 2008, the year after I established iyamadesign inc.
