Eico Shimada

I studied advertising and graphic design at a college of arts in Japan. I worked for an advertising company as a designer after graduating, And I currently develop new products at HIGHTIDE, a stationery maker based in Fukuoka, Japan.

I love old Japanese signboards, fashion magazines and 70-80s romantic comedy dramas. Based on these sources of ideas, I would like to create products that gives users a chuckle to make their daily lives even happier.

Beside working, I spend my free time making pottery inspired by scenes in my memory and hazy ideas that come from myself.
