【Interview】DELTRO INC.



The winner of the 2017 Tokyo Art Directors Club Grand Prix, out of a field of some 8,000 submissions, was the “INDUSTRIAL JP” website and video work made for six small urban factories. The art direction, design and front-end engineering of the website were executed by DELTRO Inc. art director/designer Masanori Sakamoto and technical director/programmer Ken Murayama. “INDUSTRIAL JP” was started with the aim of making a record label out of small factories in Japan’s urban areas. Machine sounds are collected onsite from the manufacturing equipment in these small factories, and musicians use these samples to create original works of music. Then, by incorporating visual recordings of the manufacturing processes, music videos are produced. The font used on the “INDUSTRIAL JP” website is AXIS Font Condensed.We have interviewed Masanori Sakamoto.
