It was a true pleasure to work with Fumihito Sugawara of Fuman Studios on Redbud Plumbing's branding project. Everything went smoothly from the initial project consultation to the final logo and business card approvals. I was extremely impressed with Fumihito's ability to convert the thoughts and concepts discussed during the initial consultation into a sample of logos that we were able to fine tune into an engaging professional logo. We emerged with a logo and branding vision (apparel, vehicle signage, and business cards) that I am completely proud of. The service was top notch, and I look forward to working with Fuman Studios on all future design projects.

I hired Fumi to design the logo for my store. I had vague ideas about what I wanted out of the logo and he brought them into focus for me. As expected, I had a lot of anxieties going into this important step and it melted away with Fumi's warm, thoughtful approach. The end result came out so much better than I could have imagined. I'm only disappointed that the process is over as I had so much fun going over the designs. I couldn't be happier with the results from Fuman Studios and will use him again in the future!

I’ve been a fan of Fumis' graphic designs for several years. I recently commissioned art for my solo album cover from Fumi. I’m overwhelmingly satisfied with his work. He crafted the perfect imagery for my record, and I am very proud of the finished product. I will definitely hire him again for my next project, and I have been referring him to other artists as well.

"Fumi-Hito Sugawara's work is simply sublime. Fumi's use of color and composition helps to tell the story of the brand or artist for which he is creating. Fumi's work is evocative and thoughtful. One can easily be captivated or swept away by his images. While Fumi-Hito is a multi-talented artist and musican. He is also professional, and dedicated to getting the project just right. While creating Fumi is aware of the importance of deadlines and works to that standard. Fumi-Hito's sensitivity to detail makes for great collaboration, yet does not hinder him from working alone. Anyone interesting in making a big splash or statement for their business or a creative venture, Fumi is the person you want on your team".
Fumi was communicative, quick, professional, and asked great questions. He could either take a lot of input and do what I wanted, or take creative control if I wanted him to do that, very flexible. He gave me lots of options every step of the way, and I love the finished product. I'm using it as the logo for my business, and literally everyone who has visited my site or seen it has remarked on how good it is. Fantastic work..

I’m addition to being a shear pleasure to work with, Fumi seemed genuinely interested in making sure I ended up with a logo for my band that I was happy with, and in the end a great result was achieved! I’m happy with the unique logo he designed for me, and the courteous and professional manner in which Fumi conducts himself also made it a fun process. He’s really nice to work with and does a great job!
After seeing many fabulous posters and cover art designs by Fumi, I asked him to design for our company’s season performance. He is a fabulous collaborator and creator, and highly professional and skilled. We brainstormed ideas about the show, and he came up with something that truly embraced our vision of the performance. He was incredible to work with through the whole process, and was very receptive to feedback and making adjustments. There were some challenges with marketing this show, and Fumi was a great help in finding solutions. I would absolutely work with Fumi again, and highly recommend him to others.

Fumi’s portfolio has soul, and we were excited to see how he would visually translate our mission and energy. He produced the fun, compelling logo we wanted for our company and we couldn’t be more pleased.

I employed Fumi as a graphic designer to design two logos for two separate businesses to be launched soon. I had been very impressed with the creativity I’d seen in some of his graphic work in the public domain and he did not disappoint. In both cases, Fumi took great pains up front to hear my thoughts and vision for the businesses, and incorporated them into his work. He designed alternatives, and showed that he had understood what I was looking for.
He was also very receptive to my feedback and followed up promptly with modifications.
Overall, Fumi is professional, courteous and great to work with .I would have no hesitation in working with him again.

In my experience, it's hard to find such a talented individual such as Fumihito. Not only is he a stellar graphic designer, he is an awesome person. As an owner/hiring manager for my company, I have had the pleasure of working with Fumihito on a number of occasions. Fumi always brings a level of professionalism and creativity to every project. He is always ahead of schedule and creates exceptional work. I look forward to hiring him on future projects.
