Mio joined MACD & Co. after working in Tokyo, Japan as a graphic designer in the music industry. Her interest lies in the print medium, and questioning the role of graphic designers in the grand scheme of things. Whatever Press is an independent publishing house established as her playground to experiment with the 'English-of-the-everyday'. She strategically deconstructs elements of the English language and playfully reconstructs them again. Her work nudges the audience to reflect on spoken English, and the unconscious ways in which it shapes our perception of reality.
