The designer and founder of goodbymarket Tomohiro Ikegaya was born in March 1982 in Shimizu Ward at Shizuoka prefecture where Mt. Fuji is, that is also the source of his inspiration.

Tomohiro Ikegaya studied architecture and at the same period he acted as amateur musician. He was involved into the opening of new interior stores and he worked in the same field in Tokyo. In 2011 he founded goodbymarket, a design brand, in Shizuoka, Japan, with the aim of improving the relation between products and communication, attempting to create new linking tools.

“I designed this T-shirt just before climbing Mt. Fuji for the first time in my life” says Tomohiro Ikegaya. “This T-shirt has a simple design with only numbers printed on the front side; the number “3776” is the altitude of Mt. Fuji. I drew a blue jaggy inside; flipping up the hem, you can see Mt. Fuji appearing. That T-shirt gave an excuse for an enjoyable conversation with strangers. Since then, when I found something like Mt. Fuji, I have tried to make out of it a work”.
