Kouichi Okamoto's designs impress with simple design and brilliantly unconventional ideas. Maybe it's due to the unconventional career of the young designer. Kouichi Okamoto never visited a design school. He learned the basics of design completely by himself.
Before his career as a designer, Kouichi Okamoto was a successful electronic music DJ. He produces with other artists, including Dutch star DJ Misjah. His most successful hit was "In the Sky". He then changed from working the decks to working a sketching desk.
Kouichi Okamoto is today CEO and a successful managing designer at Kyouei-Design. Many of his current designs are created together with his wife Ayako Nakanishi. Though Kouichi Okamoto still continues to be party DJ if it's a special occasion.
