D-ZERO, Fukuoka and ASA Digital, Sendai join forces in a business partnership ― D-ZERO and ASA Digital have teamed up with a shared vision to provide advertising production services for regional towns and cities ―

A Fukuoka based digital content production company, D-ZERO co.,ltd.(hereafter D-ZERO), specializing in web and creative services for domestic clients, and ASA Group(hereafter ASA Digital), a digital production company that has been building a framework for producing digital content with an international reach for regional towns and cities across Japan, have joined forces in a business partnership to develop a business model for digital content production aimed at regional towns and cities.

D-ZERO, established in 2000, has worked on various projects for a large number of clients nationwide and provides a one stop production service for digital design. D-ZERO, with a special touch of Fukuoka charm, offers planning, design, development and operation, and boasts of the quality and creativity provided which appeals to the whole of Japan.

Since 2001, ASA Digital has produced digital content for the web, video, apps, etc, and also provides a one-stop production service. From planning and design to development and implementation, ASA Digital offers not only these regular production services, but also various types of specialized services such as operation and managerial support, executed by a diverse and skilled team in order to meet the demands of clients.

As it is forecast that regional economies will shrink in the future due to declining birth rates, an aging population, urban population growth, and the concentration of wealth in these metropolises, there is a need to take this into consideration if the company is to prosper and regional economies flourish.

Both D-ZERO and ASA Digital are looking to combat the problem by taking advantage of their well-developed IT talents, business know-how, and abundant resources to create a business model based on a philosophy of “recovering local economies”, one that allows growth for cities by nurturing the economy and generating opportunities for workers.

D-ZERO, which is able to meet the high demands for the next wave of digital products, and ASA Digital, with a focus on an international business profile as well as complete production and management support, share a vision of a bright future for developing regional areas and aspire not only to successful business growth but also to fortifying those regional economies by making working in local areas attractive through producing high-quality content and in turn increasing employment.
