Startup Fukuoka

This Startup Fukuoka City website was developed for the Fukuoka City Council. I prepared the design layouts and original illustration artwork.

It was an amazing opportunity to work on the redesign for the Oreo UK website. I also helped with some (not all) of the illustration artwork. My role on this project was limited to the design layouts. The actual build was completed by another team.
