Design can change the way you do business, the way you learn (or teach), the way you communicate with others, and even the way you live.
It's all around us - from the clothes you're wearing to the device you're reading this on.
Design isn't just about making things look nice, it's about making things work beautifully, solving problems, making you and your business more viable and effective, and changing the way we do things.
storm from the east is a small studio founded by Richard Knobbs in 2006 and based in Tokyo. We use design to help our clients thrive.
We work closely with companies, schools and individuals on projects covering writing, editing, strategy, graphic design, education, training and more.
We can help you create easy to implement designs covering:
Our work has a heavy leaning towards simplicity, inspired by nearly two decades of living in Japan, meaning the important details are emphasized and unnecessary elements are kept to a minimum.
We'd love to work with you, so send us an email and say hello. We speak English, Japanese and Spanish, so don't be shy.
We sometimes speak and do design workshops, if you're interested in that kind of thing, and we're also available on a consultancy basis. Richard also very kindly (and unexpectedly) gets a mention in Work for Money, Design for Love.
Some of our lovely clients include:
Moneta Intelligence Group
We especially like working with schools, NPOs and individuals who like doing some good in the world.
Since 2006, the blog has been featuring great design from around the world with a global audience.
