After completing studies at Kuwasawa Design School, NAKANISHI went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Waseda University's School of Letters, Arts and Sciences I; he subsequently embarked upon a postgraduate course, but dropped out midway. Inspired by the belief that a major university such as Waseda Univercity should set up a center for design education, NAKANISHI announced a proposal for the establishment of a Waseda University Design Faculty, and together with Mr. Ryuichi HAMAGUCH co-authored "Design Policy: Corporate Image Formation" Japan's first book on the subject of corporate strategy design.
