Overlooking the incomparable view of the Setouchi Inland Sea, “Setouchi Retreat Aonagi” is a small luxury hotel that enjoys the matching of Tadao Ando’s architecture design with the one-of-a-kind location the structure is nested at.

Filled with the generous use of spaces, the Ando architecture presents seven guestrooms. Limited to be used by the guests only, the hotel offers spacious outdoor and indoor swimming pools, jacuzzi and sauna. The therapists at “ALL THAT SPA SETOUCHI” would relieve you of all stress with their domestically produced, all-natural treatments. Neighbouring the hotel is the well-known “Elleair Golf Club Matsuyama.” The rich array of facilities and services is brought together to cater for various interests.

Our identity design for Setouchi Retreat Aonagi involved graphic works such as: logo design, sign system, pamphlet, stationeries and other operational items. Also tasked were website design and communication design for PR purposes. For the wide-ranged assignments, we provided an integrated consulting service to best shape the brand.

The coastline of the Setouchi Inland Sea, viewed from the hotel, is the scenery that lives up to the acclaim of the everlasting beauty. The logomark is our abstract interpretation of the coastline that symbolises the hotel and its accommodation experience.

We regard this hotel as the combination of modern architecture and contemporary art that has its roots in the surrounding nature, sceneries and culture. With this idea in mind, we drew the whole design work to project the integrated aesthetics that pair quality with tranquility.

“Setouchi Retreat Aonagi” is a branding project for the hotel guests to indulge in the experience of staying at “the Ando architecture nested in the nature of Setouchi.”

Brochure and ‘Under 40’ recruitment card design for Roppongi Hills Club, a members-only club located in Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. With its elegant design and clean layout, we designed the brochure to reflect the exclusivity and luxuriousness of the club. To entice people who are under the age of 40 to become a member, the recruitment card was playfully designed around the motif of ’40’.

Brochure design for TEAM JAPAN, winner of Bocuse d’Or Asia and contender in the world championship.
We conveyed the Japanese chef’s vision of expressing the essence of Japan ‘wabi-sabi’ within French cuisine; through the use of wood-paper and washi, materials associated with Japanese culture.
A synthesis of Japanese aesthetics and technology, extremely thin slices of wood was used to make the cover.
Together with the cover and metallic foil stamp of the symbolic typesetting, we created an amalgam of western and Japanese aesthetics.

Bocuse d’Or Asia大会で優勝し、世界大会へ進んだTeam Japanを紹介するブロシュアデザイン。
フレンチの中に和の真髄である「侘び寂び」を表現した日本人シェフの視点を、木の紙・和紙といった日本特有の素材によって表現しました。
表紙に使用した紙は本物の樹木を薄くスライスしたものであり、日本の繊細な美と卓越した技術を見せながら、シンボリックな文字組みのメタリックな
箔押しによって、和と西洋のフュージョンを印象づけました。
