As a child, Yoshiharu Shimura did not like studying. His grandmother’s high praise of his art (a crayon drawing of Donald Duck) eventually led him to study art, while anticipating to escape from studying.
After studying at the university, Shimura worked hard and produced many works for 26 years, while thinking he understood design enough.
However, at the age of 50, his sudden encounter with this particular project inspired him to proceed to the next phase.
He questioned the design in the past carrier, and decided to explore a design development process by listening to people, research, explain and absorb. He is convinced this is the right method.
10 years have passed since then, and Shimura continues to seek for encounters with new people and design process.
