I’m Yosuke Ushigome, a creative technologist based in London.

I demystify emerging technology through prototyping.

Bio

I am currently working at Takram’s London studio as a lead creative technologist.

My primary interests are centred around emerging technologies. I probe future visions that they promise, reveal the cultural and political mechanisms behind them, and illustrate insights through making various prototypes. By doing so, I aim to facilitate in-depth understanding of the implication of emerging technologies, and encourage better-informed decision-making on our future.

牛込陽介。Takramリードクリエイティブテクノロジスト。

先端技術のもつ意味や可能性に対する理解を助け、未来に関するより確かな意思決定を促すことを目的に、リサーチやコンセプト構築、プロトタイプを通してのコンセプトの表現、インタラクションデザインなどに取り組んでいる。

What I do

  • Developing future visions that are not necessarily shiny but more compelling
  • Creating prototypes that turn future visions into tangible experiences
  • Designing interactions of new products and services
