PROJECT ADVISOR : DAISUKE ENDO
Typeface made with IKEA diagrams from the Ikea manual. My initial idea was to question DIY (Do-It-Yourself) culture typographically in pardoxical manner.
IKEA’s instruction manual is a perfect example of good design; printed without words, using only simple illustrations, these simple guidelines make the complex clear and make the impossible looking things possible ... As one of our goals as designers is to help other become more than they know they can be, these manual drawings let any users to be makers, builders, crafters and even designers. The manul itself embody the idealistic goals of the graphic designers.
PROJECT 002COGNITIVE AUGMENTED COOPERATOR
Comfortbot 1.0 is an interface that users can train their own bots through feedbacks and later on use them as their own cognitive cooperator in decision makings, symbiotic thinking and to provide comfort.
How might AI support a Human centered design in the next revolution?” “And what will it amplify? It was about extending AI into the direction of emotional intelligence.
And while the impetus for teaching should not be placed so strongly as it has been on the consumer, we should pay attention to the failures and give them the right feedbacks to improve. In doing so, we will develop a mutually beneficial relationship between machines and humans.

As technology has evolved, the means to communicate with air travelers has evolved from static to dynamic digital systems.The current design systems or wayfinding of JFK doesn’t align with the excitement and newness of NYC. It’s the opposite.So I created a signage and wayfinding system guide book for JFK Airport Terminal 1.
Today’s airports already use LED displays to relay basic flight and passenger information, but digital signage can now be so much more. These overall plans may not be carried out in practice but rather they are a practical fiction, exploring the possibilities that future signage can bring.
INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION DESIGN
︎ RELATED PROJECT II (2019)
CRISPR CAS 9 (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) is a DNA editing tool, which people call scientist’s potential secret weapon for treating heritage diseases like Sickle-Cell Anemia and Muscular Dystrophy. But the usage of CRISPR CAS 9 raise lots of ethical issues as it can be misused such as designing embryo before birth which may cause new social hierarchy and ecological disequilibrium.
“Designers can probe any audiences’ beliefs and values, challenge their assumptions and encourage them to imagine how “nature” could be different.” (from Speculative Everything: Design, Fiction, and Social Dreaming by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby)
