I was always interested in creating things and designing things. Although I have majored in a design-related field at university (Environmental Design), I've spent just over a decade in writing jobs (You can check my LinkedIn page for the details).
At the same time, I got myself involved in several design-related projects, both in Japan and in Finland (though unfortunately not as a designer). But looking at great designs and how designers shaped their works firsthand, my passion for designing started to burn again.
That was 2019. I made a rough design for AndoAndoAndo's first product, A-1 Automatic Watch, proceeded to build several prototypes, updated the design and built more prototypes.
Then finally, in 2020, I launched my own company: AndoAndoAndo, and decided to go into production.
