ABOUT

「これってヘンかな? でもオモシロくないですか?」

HENKA Inc. is a design company that gives consideration to business, emotion, and creativity. Beginning with our product and service development, we offer comprehensive consulting for the creation of interactive, product, graphic, and workshop design. Our value proposition is that we are a "A Positive Creative Company". "Unprecedented", "Unbounded by design categories" - these words reflect our attitude for how we want to resolve the most difficult of situations where one does not know who to rely on, using the cycles of both liberal logic and firm creativity.

For example, these kinds of unreasonable demands: * Giving thought to what consumer electronics will be like in 2020 while also wishing to conduct team-building. * Planning for the Olympics that have redefined Japan * How to increase the value of one's store ...and so on.

Confronted with a countless variety of challenges, we will cause the world to change beginning with our proposition: "Are we strange? but isn’t that exciting?" This is the kind of company we wish to be.

WorkShops Project

2013 - 2015

In the business world, there are an infinite number of ways to clarify the problems people face. We think there are many cases where the issue is "We don't know what the problem is." At HENKA, we have designed and subsequently implement workshops that use methods and skills in order to enable a continuing thought process in the midst of total darkness when confronted with such an issue.
We make workshops for experiencing a sense of unity by presenting unforeseen, unexpected problems and sharing new ideas with team members.
Below are a sample of some of the workshops we have featured up until now:
*Redefining "adult" workshop
*Shifting opinions/outlooks/viewpoints via interfacing workshop
*Considering the banks of future generations workshop
*Thinking about product naming workshop

*Approaching product development based on global strategy workshop

*Service idea creation via BtoB workshop

Furthermore, without going into great detail, we have accomplished the following exciting projects:

UX/UI design via across divisions such as smartphone/vehicle/medical care/BtoB products/etc.

JoT

2015.4

Today, there are many way of communication. Telephone, Email, Video chat, SNS, and more.
On the other hand, how about communication between human and things?
Do you have the way?
When you attach JoT to objects, you can hear their own voices (sounds) .
At one time, Japanese thought that everything have their own soul.
We tried to make a new way of communication that we can talk with objects, not with robot voice, but with their own sound of voice using JoT.
If you could hear the voice of things, you feel close to them.
It's a new relationship between human and things.
