My book

Untitled

In 2020, I authored the book, “How Might We Learn English as a Designer? (デザイナーの英語帳),” which was published in Japan and later translated and published in Korea. It helps designers learn English, and is also read by English speakers who want to learn Japanese.

Podcast

I host a podcast called "Export," where I talk about design for Japanese listeners.
