Thanks for visiting my site. Here you will find a curated body of work done by me, Masaki Koike.

I am a visual communicator that seeks the right answer to each individual problem. Whether it’s a movie poster, a logo or a complicating package design, I believe there is a common thread that runs through it all. I started Phyx Design so that I don’t stick to one look or one industry. I believe this keeps me well rounded as a multidisciplinary designer.

Curiousity and intuition mixed with experience and skillset are the driving principles of Phyx Design.

My project for Woodstock and What it is! boxed sets earned  Grammy Awards for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package. With multiple Grammy nominations for Black Sabbath - The Dio Years, Phish - The Clifford Ball, The Smith Tapes and Grateful Dead -  Get Shown the Light My most recent accomplishement was being selecteed by the City of Los Angeles for the design of the citywide campaign against hate crimes called LA for ALL.

I am native angeleno and reside in Pasadena, California. I taught Design Fundamentals and Typography at UCLA Extensions DCA program for over a decade. I’m a self proclaimed cinefile and avid yoga practitioner. Overall, i’m a good person so please reach out!
