Who we are
We are broom,
a integrated product design studio.
"broom" is a design studio based in Tokyo that specializes in offering a comprehensive package of design services that include associated content and visual in addition to the products themselves. Our work revolves around the elements of "design" "brands" and "businesses", We consider different ideas and angles and bring things together in a cohesive manner. At the same time, we hope to inspire better communication and hands-on experiences by developing systems that can enhance the growth of businesses and through other interesting means that do not yet exist. Currently, we are involved in a wide variety of product-based projects ranging from the planning and styling of industrial products, furniture, and consumable goods, to their brand development and business planning.
What we do
We are involved in the planning and design of various "products" regardless of their categories, business types, and production methods, ranging from commercial to promotional items, handicrafts to mass-produced goods, as well as products in both B-to-C and B-to-B settings. Even in cases where we are dealing with individual products, we are able to draw on our expertise in building frameworks and branding to create an effective niche within the entire system of companies and businesses. At the same time, we are always on the lookout for exciting ways to make products stand out to the rest of the world. We believe that bringing new values and identities to products is also an important role of "design.”
#Contents & Service
In the case of product brands, we often provide long-term support not just during the business' initial launch but in its development phase as well, which ranges from setting up the necessary frameworks to design and direction assistance during business operations. We begin by conducting extensive research on our client and the industry in question before formulating a plan with a clear idea of what it would take to be successful. An important part of our job is to identify triggers in casual communication and new perspectives that have evolved over a period of time, and integrate these elements into our creative work.
#Package & PR tool
broom is also engaged in various other tasks besides work commissioned by our clients, including setting ourselves up to carry out the entire range of our support operations as well as organizing, sharing, and putting our ideas to work. The role played by "production" in the modern industry is merely a part of the whole. In fact, there is a lot more work that needs to be done, including planning and design, building the brand, management of the inventory and retail spaces, handling of the media, social media operations, development of sales channels, and the layout of websites and exhibitions. That is why we are committed to working in teams to deepen our knowledge in everything related to products in order to acquire an expansive understanding of manufacturing, which includes its various management-related aspects.
