MdN Corporation, a corporation which handles media projects in the field of design at Impress Group,
launched the ‘MdN Designers’ File 2017′ project.
It is the latest 2017 edition of a creative directory which lists graphic designers, art directors, etc.
all in one place.

Please enjoy the MdN Designers’ File 2017,
which has become even more substantial as it approaches its fifteenth edition.
‘Illustration and Idea Design Collection’, which is published by Graphic-sha,
includes many works which feature OUWN’s illustrations.
Please enjoy experiencing the warmth these illustrations provide.
At the Tokyo TDC Annual Awards 2017,

We want to thank all the people involved for the effort they put in this project.
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.

From Jan. 7 to Jan. 28, 2017, OUWN will be holding an exhibition entitled “Circulation.”
The venue will be the Starbucks Coffee Neighborhood Store in Hatsudai 1-chome. Hosted in the unconventional venue of Starbucks, this exhibition will allow even those who rarely come in contact with design and art to experience artwork freely and to spend a pleasant time together with others.
Given that idea,
it was decided that we would accept this wonderful proposal, take the plunge, and hold this exhibition.
We hope you enjoy the link between the peace and calm of the Starbucks dining space and OUWN’s exhibition, “Circulation.”
