Jose Cabaco arrived in Tokyo this weekend and was literally the first person at this office on Monday morning. Guess he was anxious to get to work on the Nike project he’s going to be heading up for the next few months.
Some little known facts about Jose …
He hails from Portugal
He lived in Japan many years ago when he was a car designer for Toyota
He once owned 4 sneaker shops
He has 5 names: Jose Ricardo Pereira Cabral Cabaco
Yuri Suzuki, a product design and electronic music artist based in London stopped by our office and gave us a presentation of his work. John Jay had met him at the CRAFT PUNK exhibition in Milan and this time we enjoyed seeing a lot of his creative work. It’s hard to describe his work in one word but he is a talented artist who does an interesting collaboration of product design X music X toy X installation added with a great sense of humor! Thanks for coming Yuri and we look forward to your upcoming project!
７月１３日により「Google 未来を選ぼう ２００９」が立ち上がりました。
On July 13, Google launched a general election portal:Google Japan Election Portal 2009.
In our related campaign, we asked citizens to post questions to potential candidates for the 2009 House of Representatives Election on Google Moderator. People could then vote for the best so that they are selected in a democratic way.
To motivate people to post questions, we filmed 7 influencers and asked them what they would like to ask the candidates.
We also ran a full page ad on July 15 in national press to announce the portal and campaign. 15日の朝刊には15段広告も掲出され、より幅広い方の参加を呼びかけています。
Entries for questions were closed on July 28. There were 266,416 votes, and 4,724 questions posted.
From the questions that were posted on Google Moderator, top 5 questions were chosen and candidates posted their answers on YouTube – “Politics in Japan“.
