GASBOOK 01″GROOVISIONS”Don’t try to pin this design unit down to graphic media. They are equally as deft creating sound, film or fashion as they are molding motion graphics. The first issue of Gasbook rounds up their broad-ranging activities into four sections: “Sound”, “Number”, “Box”, and their bestknown character, “Chappy”.
GAS BOOK 02″BIG ACTIVE”No other studio in London is receiving so much attention for their art direction, graphic design and creative management.

This is the first collection of their work.

This volume collects many graphic and video works as well as rare commentary and anecdotes from Ukawa himself.
