He designed a New Year’s greeting card using a bit different kind of paper made from grass.

KINTO’s baby’s cutlery set “BONBO” has been awarded a bronze medal in the “household goods,
general merchandise, and medicine” department of the Japan Packaging Design Awards 2021.

https://www.jpda.or.jp/…/2020/09/2021awards_list0909m.pdf

“BONBO” produces tableware for babies and kids that make meals and snacks memorable and joyful moments.

The adorable product is white in color to emphasize the colors of the food,
has an organic round form, and can be microwaved as well as put in dishwashers◎

The packaging depicts heartwarming images of joyful days and
memories that metaphorically imply sunny days and a bright sun,
while the bottom is adorned with a black facade of the image on the front, symbolizing the shadow created by the bright sun.

Other than that,
our new packaging for the 180ml Miyoshi Blue (rice wine)

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.
