What we do

As part of the Monstarlab group, A.C.O. are the design specialists of a global digital consultancy. Our award-winning work blends branding, UX, UI and visual design to not only solve our clients’ needs, but also make something they (and their customers) fall in love with.

A.C.O.’s clients are currently based mainly in Japan, but with an increase in collaboration across the group, opportunities for global projects are growing fast. With locations in 16 countries and 27 cities including New York, London, Copenhagen, Dubai, Singapore and Shanghai, there are new markets available to us through the Monstarlab group.

Clients range from startups to listed global companies, across B2B and B2C in industries including healthcare, finance, travel and many more. We focus on digital design — mobile apps and websites, but projects increasingly cross over into the physical through IoT such as wearables and smart buildings.

At any time more than 30 projects are in progress, so unlike a career based around an in-house product, a career at A.C.O. exposes you to a huge variety of projects. In short, the problems we help our clients solve are varied, challenging and always fresh.

Why we do

  • グローバルにも対応できる強力なチームとして成長を続けています。
  • 自社メディアでは社員が記事をライティング。コンテンツ・マーケティングの知見は顧客への提案に活かされています。

Why we do

We believe a good design not only solves a problem, but also creates an emotional connection. Really good design is both functional and emotional — so we strive to design experiences that are loved. With that in mind we always start with people, and design with empathy.

Digital platforms allow us to reach millions of people. By linking cutting edge technology with stunning design, we can make an impact around the world — solving people’s problems and making them a little happier in the process.

How we do

  • プロジェクト毎にチームが編成され、全員が顧客の課題解決に挑みます。
  • 2人並んで考え創る、ペアワーキングを推奨しています。

How we do

A.C.O. team backgrounds include architecture, automotive design, information and graphic design, as well as experts from a range of sectors beyond the design industry. This variety helps us find new perspectives and is part of what makes us unique. With a British Creative Director on the board, we’re a Japanese company with a global outlook.

Our human-centered approach to design means that however digital the output, understanding how real people actually live and interact plays a big role. UX research provides insights that leads to more meaningful designs, backing up inspiration with evidence.

A.C.O. has been designing for 20 years now, and we’ve learned how to create what matters — a fulfilling, healthy, educational culture where everyone can learn, grow and be happy.
