Design by Oji Masanori
Born in Hiroshima Prefecture in 1974.  After working in an architect office and a graphic design office, he became a handicraft designer. His works expand from designing a variety of Japanese handicraft products, making graphic designs of ongoing works to developing the branding of his product families in an integrated manner. He designs based on the upbringing of a handicraft item with an eye in the destiny of that particular product.

He handles the product design and the development of the “Futagami” brand (2009-). He also co-organizes a series of exhibitions of Japanese handicraft and products of medium-scale production, called “TE TE TE Traders’ Expo” (2012 -). 

In 2015, he became the juror of the Takaoka Craft Competition. In 2016, he became the chief juror.
