HYPER CORE was founded by the Japanese artist Hisacy. Most of the designs the brand produces are based on his original illustrations. Before starting HYPER CORE, Hisacy’s job as an illustrator included work for Japanese magazines, album covers, apparel designs, and other clients – much of it music-related.
Since launching HYPER CORE, Hisacy has continued to work with various Japanese bands and musicians including Yoshiki (X Japan), hide, Chisato (PENICILLIN), Gacharic Spin, DOLL$BOXX, DaizyStripper, and more. The visuals of the brand reflect his interest in punk/underground music and style.
