Our Story Studio
Away from the day to day work we also love chatting about stories we’re loving, everything from the latest documentaries on Netflix to what we’re currently reading.
For our graphic novel reading material, we take inspiration from our Story Studio.
Our Story Studio is the creative space in our offices. It is the place where we hold strategy sessions, team building exercises and meetings.
The space houses a 30-foot long whiteboard wall and bookshelves full of colourful and engaging graphic novels brought in by our CEO.
These books are regularly taken by the team to enjoy, spreading our love of a great story.
We’ve decided to spread this joy of storytelling further.
Every two weeks we’ll be focusing in on one of the graphics novels which line the shelves of our Story Studio, focusing on their story and sharing why we loved it.
‘Tokyo on Foot‘ by Florent Chavouet
Florent Chavouet is a young graphic artist. Joining his partner as she spent time in Tokyo completing an internship, Florent spent six months exploring the exciting city. This adventures and what we saw and learned each day is documented in this graphic novel.
Florent made it his mission to visit as many neighbourhoods in the city as possible. Each day he set out on foot or by bike with his coloured pencil and sketchpad. While in the various areas he drew his view. This varies from a view from a cafe window, vendors selling their goods or even people relaxing in the park. He also drew maps of the area so you can pinpoint exactly where he is.
The book is separated by neighbourhood, with the neighbourhood police station marking the new district.
Florent also makes sure to let his audience in on his own personal surroundings documenting his apartments both inside and out.
This stunning book records the city as a vibrant place full of interesting and engaging characters.
With a playful sense of humour and talent for capturing the personality of both people and places, the book shows the true essence of beauty and character in Tokyo.
