“BranD Magazine, Issue 47 – Look Forward,” which is edited by Sendpoints Publishing in Hong Kong, ran a feature on Ishiguro from our company.
Ishiguro was selected on the Graphic page, from among various categories. We wish to extend our sincere thanks to all who were involved.
Graphis Magazine was first published in Zurich, Switzerland in 1944 and later relocated to New York City as Graphis. It has a long and distinguished history as an international organization that has created a range of design awards and that presents award-winning works from 1944 to the present in digital and print formats.
Ishiguro from our company served as a judge at this year’s NEW TALENT ANNUAL 2020, which is an international award.
He had a glimpse into new explorations and new discoveries, which was invigorating for us as well.
