Our Process

  • 1 _ Research

    We work closely with you to find out all we can about the project and how best to achieve your goals. Before we get down to work, we get to know you and your organization, so the design reflects your own point of view, right from the start.

  • 2 _ Development

    Building on our research, we explore various creative strategies that will help you meet your objectives and establish a course of action that will be a blueprint for success.

  • 3 _ Implementation

    Guided by the chosen concept, we craft a unique, one-of-a-kind visual solution that will effectively communicate the goals of your project through design, from the big picture to the smallest detail.

  • 4 _ Launch

    We put the new design into action, working with you to implement the strategy in all its varied forms. We help you with project management, oversight and follow through, so you hit the ground running and the introduction of your design has impact.

Work About

Nakamura Keith Haring Collection

Books, Branding, Identity, Packaging

Located in the mountains north of Tokyo, the Nakamura Keith Haring Collection is a museum unlike any other in the world, dedicated solely to the work of the groundbreaking artist Keith Haring. Our ongoing collaboration with the museum has created a graphic identity that links Haring’s elemental drawing style with an ancient Japanese craft and the museum’s spectacular natural setting.

“It was a challenge for us to find a non-Japanese design firm to work with, but Hinterland has proven over and over again that successful visual communication is a universal language.” Kazuo Nakamura Director, Nakamura Keith Haring Collection

Various projects to date have established a recognizable identity for the Nakamura Keith Haring Collection and raised its profile in the international art community.
