I am not sure you can a conversation about visionary designers without talking about Yugo Nakamura. His work on sites like NEC ecotonoha and ITL Interior Designers are examples of visionary thinking. NEC ecotonoha is an utterly unique community experience where the results of the virtual communities work are tied to real world results and actions. His experimental Flash work is just as fascinating and has been for years. I admire Yugo’s work not only for it’s originality but for the fact that he been able to stay out in front for so many years.
