on saul kaplin


I am a graphic designer. I was born and raised in Japan. I have just completed the BA (Hons) Graphic Design course at Arts University Bournemouth.
I also have experienced working as a technician during the summer courses in my university.


I feel particularly inspired by pure typography, also model making and crafting. I prefer a combination
of digital and analogue media, suggesting
the warmth of the human hand.


All my disciplines reflect a minimalist style and
simple design, and these principles are also
reflected in my everyday life.


i am currently looking for an internship, a junior designer role and freelance commission.
