Logo design for a blockchain data storage, encryption, and file sharing platform.
Ghost Drive is a blockchain data storage, encryption, and file sharing platform drafted by Wizebit, an Estonia based company specializing in blockchain and AI technology, launched by a SELECTO, a digital products design and engineering company in Ukrine.
Like a ghost appears and vanishes, ghostdrive takes the uploaded document and splits it into millions of pieces, which can only be reassembled by the user with a private key.
The team of Ghost Drive needed an identity which brings us feels of “security”, while it has “ghost” in its name.
The geometric ghost, not one with scary face nor with cartoonish style, brings us tech forwarded feel.
Logo design for an organic and vegan bakery cafe in Central Singapore.
Slow bakes is a bakery cafe specializing in organic and vegan products, based in Central Singapore.
Choi Jee Yang, the founder of the slow bakes and also known as the founder of an organic restaurant Realfood in Singapore, asked me to create an identity while preparing to open the cafe.
Inspired by breaks on breads and craftsmanship, I putted hand mark on the bread to give “slow and human touch” to the people works in central Singapore, one of the most digitalized country.

Brand identity for an osteopathy clinic in Dresden, Germany.
OsteYou is a private osteopathy clinic in Dresden, Germany.
After studying in Idstein and completing the Bachelor and the Master degree of Science in Osteopathy, Dr. Markus Weslowski, the founder of OsteYou, had been working in various practices in the Rhine-Main area. And he has supported the Association of Osteopathic Germany eV, the largest osteopathic association in Germany, as an advisory board since 2017.
Preparing for opening his own clinic, he had a specific idea for its logo: illustrating the image of Andrew Taylor Still, the founding father of Osteopathy, looking into a bone in his hands.
A successful identity may hidden in its name. In this case, the initial letters can suggest the image which Dr. Weslowski imagined.
It was an incredible journey! Akihiro was really creative. Because he envisioned something that fully encompassed my idea, but made it work. I am very confident that he doesn’t only created a simple logo for my clinic, he created a brand that helps me to set myself apart from everybody else.

Logo design for an IT company based in Paris, France.
Keybirds is a French IT company, born in may 2017. It sells IT advice, integration and outsourcing services to professional clients to modernize their digital tools or to build new ones, to be durable, strong and modern.
The name of the company comes from a fusion of the word “keyboard” – to remind the digital background of their activity – and the word “bird” – to inspire the simplicity, the efficiency and the lightness of their engineering activity and business solutions.
The solution is simple but bold. I put a bird on a key.
Brand identity design for a rice cracker company in Japan.
Founded in 1986, Takasago-Seika is a Sembei (Japanese rice cracker) company in Saitama, Japan. The company makes high quality products with local ingredients.
Their new identity design needed to incorporate the Japanese sense, but something distinctive from the often-seen Japanese calligraphy style used by other sembei companies.
In early project discussions it became obvious how important “face”, because their corporate motto is “making products with visible face” which means customers can trace the producers of all the ingredients. And also, Mr. Orihara, the CEO of Takasago, said “Crackers are always with people. When they are happy, sad, angry, when they are having fun(喜怒哀楽).”
The company name “Takasago” comes from a Noh (能) play with same name, in which a Japanese pine tree is used symbolically. In Koh, actors use Noh masks which express all the feelings. And in Japan, the pine represents the high quality.
With that in mind, I symbolized “高” (the first letter of the company’s name in Japanese) as a human face, with Japanese traditional pine pattern and a grain of rice.
The logo system works to express all the emotion by changing the shape of the mouth.
“Kamon” identity for a Japanese soba noodle restaurant.
Kobushi is a Japanese soba noodle restaurant in Kazo-city, Saitama, Japan.
At its renewal open in 2017, since the second owner inherited the restaurant from his parents, he planned to make new identity.
The name “Kobushi” comes from a flower’s name (left), which has “please welcome” in the language of flowers. While the old logo (left) was the Kamon (Japanese family crest) of the family, it’s not unique and it didn’t explain the story.
The new logo has the flower of Kobushi of which petals suggest “こぶし” (Kobushi in Japanese character). Therefore, the logo has an alternative logo.
Logo design for a local fish shop in Japan.
I united the two kanji in the name “魚(Uo=fish)” and “進(shin=go forward)” in style of Japanese calligraphy.
Logo and identity pack design for an educational non-profit in Tokyo.
THOUSAND-PORT is a non-profit organization, based in Tokyo, Japan, offering workshops to students to encourage them to have their own purposes in their lives.
The logo represents the pulse when they find their purposes, while suggesting the letter “千” (kanji for “thousand”).
