The world is made of contrasting things.
Female and male; one's native language and multilingualism; domestic and overseas;
the countryside and the capital area - the keys to solving social issues exist between these things.
In CONTRAST, professionals in various fields provide solutions that make good use of
digitalization and the visualization of issues.
B-to-B corporate sales and marketing are our particular fields of expertise.
We listen to the issues facing any business and construct a suitable support system.
With our ability to get things done, we accelerate the process and
provide you with support for creating internal systems that make your internal operations easy.
We adopt Contrast Thinking through a process that lets us identify the essence of an issue. We believe that identifying what's between two contrasting things is linked to solving issues. We get to the bottom of issues that have to be solved with a micro and macro viewpoint. This process creates the directionality and vision needed to move forward with a project, making success more likely.
From professionals in various fields to students, we aim to use a broad range of resources to achieve highly convincing project implementation that is suited to our clients' budget and the nature of the project. We can also assign members with multiple professions who are active in professional fields, so combining expertise from various domains to achieve speedy project implementation is our characteristic.
After implementation, we identify the next issues through periodic reporting. To continue improving, we go through PDCA and carry out multiple, periodic strategy reviews on the same project, bringing you closer to the solution.
We seize the essence of an issue, decide on the direction and vision of the solution, and draft that solution. Our characteristic is that we focus on the issue and aim for a solution that makes good use of cutting-edge technology from inside and outside the country. We also explore the possibility of reuse by storing data.
I would like to create a society where brilliant artists, athletes, and people who express themselves are able to face the capitalist society and create an economic system together.
This agency business was created based on that wish. We bring the idea of creating the impetus for solutions between black and white into the interactions between the economy and people who express themselves, and accelerate both sides by entering between them. Our agency creates an environment where people who express themselves can focus on creative work by handling the business-side planning, operations, and fund management. On the other hand, we raise awareness of artistic thinking and cultural activities in the economic system, and plan and carry out collaborations between businesses and the people who express themselves under our company. By enabling cultural activities - which must still exist in a changing world - to coexist with a capitalist society, we provide emotional fulfilment to people.
I am an artist who travels the world and conveys the unconscious oscillation and resonance of humans with a single iPhone. I stand on the boundary between analog and digital and continue to release works that stand out.
We handled information dissemination for Japan's largest outdoor surf-skate event, from content planning to dissemination. We also handled business activities for the purpose of obtaining sponsors, working on the creation of the sponsor list as well as business activities. We pinpointed existing leads to reach out to sponsors, and also obtained new leads through email and inquiry forms.
GoodFeeling Inc. is a film production company. We handled a business plan and strategy to monetize film media for documentaries, which was an internal plan of the company. We called on multiple film creators and influencers, and designed and created the concept of the entire website. We created a team based on external resources as a new business. Creating a team with external resources for challenges that could not be solved with only internal resources enabled us to implement the project while hedging our risks.

Reporting is done through regular meetings with the headquarters in the company's home country.
