About Kosuke

Kosuke is a Japanese designer now living in Vancouver, Canada. He specializes in digital experiences and interfaces but would love to design anything.

Growing up, Kosuke was fascinated by new gadgets and how it gave people superpowers. This curiosity lead him to pursue a degree in design at Simon Fraser University. It was here that he learned not only about the design process but also developed a point of view on his design practice. Before he started designing Macro, Kosuke interned at design agencies like R/GA Tokyo and Green Stone, as well as working independently with smaller companies like Instaread and The Digital Panda.

Culturally, Kosuke is a product of the Kantō region of Japan, Toronto, Arizona, and now Vancouver. Over time, these environments have produced a hybrid of Japanese sensibility and Hip-Hop audacity. Kosuke enjoys making with people, listening to people, and observing the world around him with an open mind.

He now designs full-time and aspires to become a designer with a capital D.
