We Express the Heart of the Matter in Visual Form Philosophy Polar Design is dedicated to helping our clients visualize and communicate their key values.
Method We get to know our clients by consulting with them closely and developing a deep understanding of their key values. We bring these values to life with fresh visual concepts, creating images and videos that our clients’ audiences will respond to from the heart. Finally, we share the media we create with our clients' target markets using a flexible approach.
Our Creative Concept We believe our clients are full of original ideas. But in this borderless age, the media landscape has become both more sophisticated and more homogenized. Although audiences today are inundated with a steady supply of images, we capture their attention by expressing our clients’ appeal in a truly creative way.
We are skilled videographers and photographers who develop powerfully original creations that bring our clients’ unique charms to life.


Polar Design offers visual design services focusing on moving images and graphic design. We are based in Kyoto and Aichi prefecture, Japan. We offer video productions, including concept videos that convey the attractiveness of each company and its products. We also produce videos that document the process of creation, such as the arts, craft products, and other creative works. We primarily film our concept and documentary videos live. Our graphic design services cover everything from business branding —including CI/VI, web design, and sign design—to business cards and envelopes and many other items. We look forward to receiving your request.
