MASUMI RAYMOND are the creative partners Masumi Nagano and Raymond Jow.  

Based in New York City but with deepening roots in Sendai (Japan).  Past projects have involved collaborations with the elusive musician Jandek and a number of works with the legendary musician Loren Connors, some of which were chosen as "Selected Work" at the Tokyo Type Directors' Club.  During their brief time in the fashion world, their work was chosen by Maison Martin Margiela and SHOWstudio as being of "the more creatively ambitious" for their unfinished pattern "Live Project".  Their dabbling in music gave rise to five albums, an invitation to participate in two shows in France, and two live performances (one broadcast on the radio) with Loren Connors.  They have continued to expand their collection of entirely self published and self generated books, two of which won "Best of Show" two years in a row at the American Center for Design, and now number seventy three in total.  Their continued interest and graduate studies in architecture were made into material form in the shape of retail design, competitions and with Masumi Nagano becoming a registered Architect in the state of New York.

Most recently, they have been working on a series of illustrated childrens’ books, a series of young adult adventure novels and a short documentary film on Loren Connors.
