Matching Goods for a Sense of Unity! ~ Exploring the Secrets of Cocone Development Department Goods~!
Hello everyone, I’m Haru, a recruitment promotion intern!
Tangentially, are you interested in goods!
Yes, I do! Whether you say, “Yes, I have it! and those who say, “I don’t!
A pen with the logo of the school of your choice, a towel signed by your favorite band, a pocket tissue with the name of a store you got in town ……, etc,
You have probably been exposed to some of them.
Of course, Cocone has original goods from the company: ……
Don’t you think that the recipients may not know much about the purpose for which these goods are made, distributed, and sold?
So, in this issue, I would like to explore this area by focusing on the goods that are made by the development department within Cocone and introducing them to you all!
Therefore, Interview with Cocone Employee #7 We interviewed Mr. Takayama,VPoE (Vice President of Engineering), who we also interviewed in
What specific types of original goods are available from the Development Department?
Currently, the company offers four types of products: hoodies, T-shirts, tumblers, and stickers.
It is a little unusual to have “departmental” goods instead of “company” goods, isn’t it?
Why did the development department decide to create original goods in the first place?
When I became VPoE last October, Mr. Hongi, the CTO, asked me to brand the development department.
As part of this effort, we created the current development department merchandise in order to further enhance the sense of unity among the members, and to allow them to feel a sense of unity by wearing matching items when speaking at events such as TECH TALK.
We have been receiving more and more requests for them from other departments. We have been receiving an increasing number of “I want one!” requests from other departments, so we have been distributing and selling them not only to the development department but also to the company as a whole since a while ago.
(Development Division Goods: Hoodies)
You are currently developing four types of goods. What made you decide on these four?
As for the hoodies and T-shirts, they were made with the original purpose in mind, to be worn together by everyone when speaking at events.
For the tumbler, I chose one that is easy to use for everyday use …… specifically because the Cocone Deli has a free drink policy, so I was hoping that people would use it there.
We also created the stickers in the hope that engineers, who often put stickers and other items on their own laptops, would feel free to use them.
How many employees, both inside and outside the development department, are actually using the goods?
As for the stickers, we do not sell them, but mainly give them out along with the t-shirts to new members of our development department and others, so we do not have a detailed count. ……
So far, about 60 hoodies have been purchased, 40 T-shirts, including those distributed to new employees in the development department when they joined the company, and 30 tumblers.
We are very happy to see that many people are using our T-shirts, including deli members who are also wearing them!
Are there any particular aspects of making goods that you are particularly particular about?
Our primary concern was to create a design that could be used by both men and women on a daily basis.
We are also conscious of incorporating Cocone taste, such as using bright red for logos and other parts.
Certainly, all of the goods have a wonderful monochrome tone & stylish design that would suit any occasion!
By the way, what has been the most popular merchandise so far?
As we mentioned earlier, in terms of numbers, Parker is the best.
However, “Cute!” and we have received many comments that the tumblers are quite persistently popular, especially among people in other departments.

We would like to know if you have any thoughts on the outlook for development department goods, such as what you would like to create in the future!
Just now, the Culture Promotion Office of the Development Department, which is mainly composed of newly graduated members, is taking the lead and has also started producing new goods.
As we make various selections, the most popular item right now is the mouse pad. We are also in the process of considering various ways to renew the …… hoodie so that it is thinner and can be worn during the warmer months.
We are also considering preparing other items such as clear files, badges, pens, notepads, etc. in original tote bags to be given as a set to candidates who come to our office for interviews, etc!
We would like to provide not only our employees but also potential new candidates with goods that will allow them to experience the culture of our development department, so we hope that those who are considering joining us will look forward to seeing them.
Cocone’s development department merchandise was created primarily for “colleagues working in the development department,” with the goal of “further unifying and unifying the development department.” ……
In addition to these purposes, employees outside of the development division have recently been able to obtain the goods, and the company is considering distributing the goods to candidates in the future, so the circle of development division goods is likely to expand even further in the future!
As Mr. Takayama mentioned, we hope that those who are currently considering joining Cocone, especially as engineers, will be excited to hear more news!
Cocone is currently looking for new employees to join our team.
