So, he majored in visual design and now is working as a graphic designer. Apart from his job, he edits the Origami Pro series every year. Just as origami had a great influence on the job, the design elements are important to his craft. He usually enjoys a variety of creative themes, and doesn't care about techniques or difficulty. He feels the greatest pleasure in creating a target image.
