about

Hi, my name is Kenji. I specialized in UI /UX /Frontend Development /Web Cartography, Data Visualization /GIS /Cartography, Infographic and Graphic Design.
I was born in Osaka, Japan. My design concept stems from Japanese tradition, making complex things simple. It’s said that Sado—a Japanese traditional tea ceremony—has many rules for its progress. However, all those rules are made for preventing wasteful movements. This type of techniques for a Japanese traditional tea ceremony is based on simplicity and functionality.
I believe design has to be this way, especially in this complicated modern world. Please contact me if you have an interesting project.

Abstract

According to the American Community Survey 2007-2011, the Chinese populationmakes over 20 percent of San Francisco’s total population, making Chinese the second largest ethnicity in the city.

The goal of the Creative Work is to promote bike lanes to encourage more ridership among Chinese immigrants. Although bicycling has a great benefit as affordable means of transportation and a potential to develop their economic status, it is rare to see bike participation of low-income Chinese immigrants in San Francisco.

Additionally, the Creative Work proposes a system to have the low-income Chinese immigrants involved in bike planning by the collaboration of local advocacies and media that reach out to this target audience.
