Mio Mods

I am a creative designer based in London, United Kingdom, specialising in graphic design, illustration, video production, SNS content creation, and digital marketing.

After graduating from university, I gained two years of experience as a designer at a Japanese game company before relocating to the United Kingdom in 2015. Subsequently, I accumulated experience in design and digital marketing at major Japanese travel companies and IT enterprises. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, I temporarily returned to Japan and worked as a graphic and web designer at a Traditional Japanese art and craft industry in the Kansai region. In 2021, I returned to the United Kingdom and took on the role of Digital Marketing Manager, responsible for the Japanese market, at a mobile gaming company.

Currently, I am working as a Creative Designer in London.

Drawing on diverse experiences across different industries in both Japan and the UK, I am capable of flexibly tailoring my work to meet the needs and goals of clients. Understanding varying elements and requirements for each project, I can articulate clear design concepts and achieve effective visual communication. Moreover, leveraging my knowledge and experience in digital marketing, I excel in strategically approaching design to contribute to business objectives.

In 2003, I enrolled in Osaka Prefectural Kohnan High School of Design and Fine Arts, where I studied sculptural art and design while also engaging in oil painting as a hobby.

Following graduation, I advanced to the Design Department’s Illustration Course at Seian University of Art and Design. There, I worked on digital illustration and design using textures primarily created through analog methods.

Fueled by a strong interest in British Mods culture and counter/youth culture, during my fourth year at university, I took a leave of absence to study abroad in London. Through this experience, I immersed myself in English language learning and participated in a short-term graphic design course at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. This allowed me to gain insights into design sensibilities in different cultural contexts and experience the freedom of thought.

Upon returning to Japan, I graduated from Seian University of Art and Design in 2011.
