Interview with Takako Yoshikawa

Takako Yoshikawa ("TY") interviewed on Thursday, 23 May.

Could you please tell us about your experience as a designer, artist, architect or creator?

TY : As an artistic director, as a multiple creator, as a designer, I have participated in projects of a number of leading Japanese companies and International Brand. My main projects include head office project of Daimaru Department Store, Osaka Gas, Samantha Thavasa, Koizumi, Vidal Sasoon, Dunlop, Aprica, HENCKELS, and many more.

What are your priorities, technique and style when designing?

TY : I think image is most important thing for design. So I cherish to spend time to imagine before design rather than design technique. I draw designs by handwriting, I also use the latest digital tools, and I make mock-ups and physical models too.  I try everything I think is necessary for the design project.

Which emotions do you feel when designing?

TY : At the image stage before designing, I am very excited and inflate my imagination. I really enjoy the time.

What are your advices to designers who are at the beginning of their career?

TY : I think it is important to image before design skill. Realistic image will be a real design. Check out the many beautiful designs and arts around the world for your eyes, do image training.

What is your day to day look like?

TY : Wake up early in the morning, have a time seeing morning sun and sky, sleep well evening.
