Our goal is to expand the international creative conversation to include more Japanese creators.

Yukiko Naito and Maggie Hohle have been working together translating material about Japanese creators for ten years. Hohle is also a design writer who lived in Japan for 15 years, interviewing Japanese creators in their own language in order to write accurately about them and their work. Both have interpreted and translated for a wide range of creators, and those on both sides of the language divide have praised their work.

Naito is based in Nagoya, Japan and Hohle is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, making possible an efficient, 24-hour work schedule. The partnership is also well integrated into the worlds of design, architecture and publishing on both sides of the Pacific and in the UK, allowing clients access to a wide range of individuals and institutions.
