The New York ADC annual award was established in 1920
by the Art Directors Club (ADC: New York, America ) and
acknowledges business advertisements and designs as having the same value as fine art,
and is the world’s most historic advertisement award.
At the 2018 New York ADC Annual Awards, the poster for Japanese Miyoshi Sake won a Merit award.
Thank you to everyone who was involved.

Ishiguro’s interview is published in the June 2018 issue of Discover Japan, issued by Publisher A, sold on May 7th.
His interview about Japan’s regional creation from a creative perspective, how ideas are made, and more, has been published in a multi-page spread.

The Japanese tea craze is in full swing, and this is a very fun issue.

Brooklyn Parlor Shinjuku [ Read & Taste ] Fair &
OUWN’s Exhibition [ Read & Taste ]

Brooklyn Parlor Shinjuku is a dining spot which specializes not only in food,
but also music and books,
and is located in Shinjuku Wald 9 underground.
Starting November 24 (Friday),
we will be holding a fair titled “Read & Taste” focused on books and wine.
At “Read & Taste,”
creative studio OUWN will exhibit splendid artwork as part of
their “People and Thought.” project.
We think these works,
inspired by books and wine, will be a treat for all.
The space has more than doubled since OUWN’s first “Circulation” exhibition this year,
and this event should be even more powerful.
If you’re in the area, we hope you will definitely stop by.

The German Design Award is one of the international design awards that is organized
by the German Design Council established in 1953.
The interesting thing about this award is that all the countries of the world receive an award,
and among the products recognized as having an excellent design only products recommended
by The German Design Council can become an award candidate.
At the 2018 German Design Award, the MIA poster designed
by OUWN and the sake Miyoshi were chosen as Winner and Special Mention.
Due to the fact that even receiving a recommendation is an honor in itself,
the STAFF members were all smiles. Because the MIA poster has been created many years ago,
we were delighted to have been recommended,
re-evaluated and selected.


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.
