About Me

Hi, I'm Hilo, a designer with more than 10 years of experience. Utilizing strategic perspective and human-centred design, I design digital products that would be helpful for our society. I love to collaborate cross-functionally, look into quantitative and qualitative facts, and iterate with patience and optimism to create better outcomes for humans, our communities and businesses.

Formerly, I led the design of Novasell Analytics, a Japanese TV Ad analytical tool, to help various companies to increase their brand recognition efficiently at a startup called Raksul. Before that, I worked on client works such as websites and brand identities for small to mid-sized companies to have better relationships with their customers, and mobile app UI for large telecom companies and electric manufacturers. I studied Architecture and Interior Design at Musashino Art University when I was in my early 20s.

I spent most of my life in Tokyo, Japan. But I also found my root in Vancouver, Canada, where I spent my childhood and start to embrace diversity.

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading Manga, and spending time with my niece and nephew. Recently, I have started Yoga, and meditations. I'm still just taking a baby step, though, I already like them.
