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.
