Client: Tamura Shigenari, Nationally Certified English Tour Guide in Japan
Project Description: Create bilingual business cards. With a samurai design. Yes, you read that right!
The Inside Scoop
I met Tamura-san at an event hosted by Hiroshima Interpreter’s for Peace. He was working as a volunteer tour guide for the event, and we got to talking.
As it turns out, he volunteers at quite a number of bilingual events around Hiroshima, but didn’t have a card to represent his services. I guess he liked my new card okay, because after seeing it he asked me to design his.
Of course, I was delighted to oblige him.
We met in a café and discussed some options. I believe the conversation went something like this.
Tamura-san: “Can you put a samurai on it?”
Me: “Can I please???”
And the rest is history.
My Favorite Part
