Junichi Tsuneoka was born and raised in Japan and, upon graduating Waseda University in Tokyo, arrived in the US in the late 1990s. Junichi established a style early in his career often recognized as “California Roll Stylie,” the result of both a visual and conceptual fusion of Japanese pop and American urban cultures. He's worked within that style to create a highly communicative, assertive body of work for clients including adidas, Google, Microsoft and Budweiser.

Presently, Junichi is working hard to realise his goal of creating his own brand of design related products. He likes to gobble candy and fire up a little Naughty by Nature in the headphones when it's crunch time, and chills out by chowing down on a nice sushi dinner and an Isaac Asimov novel.
