W+K Tokyo

Internet meets art

Our client Google held a press conference yesterday to announce the introduction of “Artist iGoogle”. If you haven’t yet discovered iGoogle, it lets you create a personalized home page, filled with whatever gadgets are of interest to you. Google Japan is collaborating with artists including Airside, Lily Franky, Hibino Katsuhiko, Kitamura Nobuhiko (Hysteric Glamour), Kuma Kengo, Nigo (Bathing Ape), Nagi Noda, Tezuka Osamu and Yamane Yuriko Shigeki. Each artist has created his/her own skin design and gadget, which means you can now make your iGoogle home page even more artistic.

Pictured below are team Yamane Yuriko Shigeki, Kuma Kengo, Google Japan President Norio Murakami, Hibino Katsuhiko, Lily Franky and Google Japan Marketing Director Miki Iwamura.
