Slanted in Tokyo

KIGI

Author:

A year ago, the Slanted team dove into Tokyo—with their friends Renna Okubo and Ian Lynam preventing them from drowning—to take an intense look at the contrasting design scene. The Japanese capital is a unique place. With its clean streets, punctual transportation and polite service at every turn, Tokyo is more than just a well-run city. It unites cultural extremes: it is a city where the futuristic meets the traditional and tranquility meets speed. In the Slanted Magazine #31—Tokyo you can get a visual impression of the studios we visited during our journey.

KIGI has been cooperatively founded by the art directors, Ryosuke Uehara and Yoshie Watanabe. As a creative design duo, their activities include branding, graphic design, product design, and more in various fields. Through creating artworks and holding exhibitions at museums and galleries, KIGI is always exploring new forms of creation. In 2015, KIGI opened OUR FAVOURITE SHOP in Shirokane, Tokyo.

Take a look at the Slanted Magazine #31—Tokyo to get an idea of Tokyo’s creative environment. Additionally you can find several video interviews on our video platform to get a deeper insight in the designer’s thoughts.
