Hi, I’m Ryuta. I’m a concept designer and a social sculptor based in Tokyo.
I started my career as an entrepreneur who co-founded a web startup. After a ten-year career as a programmer in the consumer electronics and high-performance computing field, I founded a design company in 2011. Since then, I’ve started a career as a concept designer in art, science, and the cultural field. I used to call myself a community designer, but I found that this was just one of the aspects of what I do and changed my title. In 2017, I co-founded a bio-inspired artificial intelligence and robotics startup.
I not only design a concept, but I always work to realize it with my skills, which include System Design, Community Design, Project Design, Event Design, Business Design, Logo Design, Web Design, Media Strategy, Programming, and Creative Direction as well as work with communities.
I feel that these are actions that carve a view of the world and discover the new shape of the world. What I’m most excited about is the moment when I see how people’s behavior changes because of this new perspective.
