■Comment by open call winner Umezawa Takahiro
I have been working as a designer in Tokyo now for 11 years.
In my daily work, I often wish that I could have my designs used in a place or facility where lots of people gather.
Winning this opportunity encourages me to work even more seriously in my design work -- with gratitude.
