I have always been interested in art and creativity since my childhood. My design career started when I moved to the United States from Japan. I studied graphic design at the School of Visual Arts in New York and met the best design teachers. I have been working in creative field since I graduated with honors. Over 13 years, I still love what I do and working as a designer.
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
Simplistic style is a key to my design. Kanso in Japanese refers to the elimination of clutter-of what is nonessentional. It is one of the founding principles of Japanese design and a hallmark of my work. Kanso reminds me to think in terms of clarify rather than decoration. I focus on quality, clean and simple design to help my clients build a personal brand and grow their business.

My plan for the future is to expand working on design projects with clients in worldwide. Design has no boundary.
What do you like the most in your job ?
I like solving problems and working on a project with a client as a team. I am results-oriented and I am passionate about making my clients happy.
