Cover Design: Kentaro "ANI" Fujimoto
Born in Obihiro, Hokkaido in 1973.
Formed 'Nendo Graphixxx' in 1993 while attending the Department of Design at Nihon Kogakuin College.
After graduating, I worked in the design production SPICE Inc. while setting up an indie T-shirt brand. I'm experienced as an art director/designer of 'teleparc' Japanese first web magazine project by Fujitsu Limited and art director/designer of MTV Japan. I've worked as a freelance designer since 2003 and last year relocated to Obihiro, Hokkaido to contribute to the local community with my designs.
