Giottographica — Tokyo, Japan

I think that a good music graphic design is a work that is not identifiable as being in the individual style of the designer. I don’t feel comfortable having the same or similar creative expressions for different artists. I focus on concepts and ideas that the artists and the audiences will like and I am pleased when they turn out to be original. I don’t try to compete only with my own style, but I put the emphasis on an objective point of view.

Established in 2001, this Tokyo-based studio tackles every stage of an album’s design from art direction, photography and cover art down to logos, advertising, live-tour books and merchandise goods. Japanese album-art is the benchmark for Asian album-art, so everything it does tends to be noticed.
