About

To Create. To Express. To Exist.

Ogino Design is the creative project of Seiya Ogino, founded in Shiga/Kyoto, Japan at the end of 2006.

In the beginning, the project started under a different moniker; Lonewolf Design. There was no intention of working exclusively within art circles, but as time passed, the project gradually aligned with his personal passions and changed its direction.

The first artistic collaboration took place in early 2007. Thanks to the first client and now a good friend Christian Larsson (Gloson/Svart/etc)'s suggestion, the project took its first rebrand as Ensamvarg Design the same year. This decision was no brainer, as the main target audience at the time was the Nordic music scene.

After many years of collaborations and meeting various artists throughout the world, a decision was made to rebrand once and for all to Ogino Design in late 2013, to simply expand further outside of Nordic art circles and more importantly, to cut out the corporate and impersonal feel.

Now, Ogino Design proudly works closely with many artists throughout the world on an ongoing basis, providing a wide range of creative design and marketing. The concept still remains simple and pure; to support all types of art in the world and to help make a mark together.
