Mana Koike


Hi there! Growing up between Tokyo and Boston, my constant language was that of making. Using boxes and found objects to create something new, glassblowing or ceramics, I was always looking for ways to customize and express who I was. As a product designer, I want to find the intersection of the physical and digital to create thoughtful experiences that connect users to a brand. By deeply understanding the voice of people and the brands they love, I create a strategy that allows me to craft the experience from the moment they see a product to the end of its lifecycle. Through digital innovation, sustainable material use and customization, I’m thinking forward and looking to design experiences that deeply resonate.
