GRAPHIS DESIGN ANNUAL 2018 DOUBLE GOLD

At the 2018 Graphis Design Annual,
Roppongi Hills’ 16AW advertisement “ALL THE SENSES” was chosen as a Gold Winner.
Another Gold Winner was Japanese sake maker Miyoshi, awarded for its production tools.
Also, “BLIND MOUSE,” created by Prople and Thought., was chosen as a Silver Winner.
Graphis is a design almanac with a long history. It was founded in 1944 in Switzerland,
then moved to New York in 1952, and has since been in publication.
It will be fortunate if it offers an opportunity to get to know the activities of those involved.

K-DESIGN AWARD 2017

K-Design Award is an international design contest sponsored
by the Korean design portal, “DESIGNSORI”.
It is regarded as one of the most innovative contests in the world,
as it confers three of Asia’s major design awards.

K-DESIGN OFFICIAL SITE >>

Besides giving the Grand Prize,
which goes to the only winner of the contest,
the international judging committee gives the Gold Prize to the entries with the best design.
And typically,
the Gold Prize is conferred to only one percent of the entire entrants.

At the K-Design Award 2017, OUWN’s Japanese sake “Miyoshi” received this very prize.

The award ceremony will be held at the Auditorium Coex in Seoul on August 26.

Since Korea seems to be a country that is serious
about designing (it is also where the splendid design book, “graphicmag” is based in),
we would like to take this opportunity to further establish ourselves.

DOT TRIP

We have started our “Dot Trip” web content on the OUWN site.
Dot Trip will introduce wonderful creators that are known to OUWN.
But these creators do not fit within the frame of “design.”
There are lots of deeply creative people involved with OUWN’s work.
This is a page born out out of the desire to share creators’ inquisitive nature and politeness, no matter who you choose.
We believe that if you and each of the individuals we introduce were single points,
then those lines connecting you will increase and take on a variety of new forms.

About

OUWN was founded as a corporation in 2013 by Atsushi Ishiguro and Munechika Fujita. The name stems from our hope to foster interaction, dialogue, and feelings between our owns and yours ( "own" + "u" ) through designing.
In addition to art direction, OUWN’s activities extend into many different fields such as graphics, web, fashion, visual, logo, and other types of design.

With a variety of nice dialogue with you as a "dot", OUWN wishes that dots will connect down the road.
