Happy New Year from AQ!

We hope you join us in proving the grumpy newscasters wrong about
2009, filling it with new inspiration and endeavors.

Dear friends and family,

Thanks to all for making our 2008 a year a busy one!

Last year we moved into a great new office with our friends at Tokyo Art Beat and Birds Design. We helped launch a bunch of great new websites and projects, including a new Art Beat website in New York and an art map in Tokyo. Hitotoki published it’s 100th story, and launched in Paris, Shanghai and Sofia. We also welcomed our newest designer, Ryo Ishida into the AQ team, and look forward to doing some great new work with him and learning a thing or two along the way.

We hope you join us in proving the grumpy newscasters wrong about 2009, filling it with new ideas, inspiration, and endeavors, so a very happy and healthy new year to you and your loved ones!

Chris, Eiko, Paul and Ryo
