Hello!

I am a multidisciplinary designer who works extensively in graphic design, typography, branding, print, packaging, UI&UX, motion graphics, 3D, and spatial branding/exhibitions. My diverse technical skills and perspectives simply stem from my passion for making ideas into real and meaningful experiences.
 
Having worked with companies and organizations from small to world-class. Contributing to teamwork by flexibly adapting skills and knowledge to accomplish shared visions and goals.
 
Throughout my career, I have won numerous design awards for packaging, branding, and spatial design. My education includes an MFA in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and a BFA in Visual Communication from Tama Art University in Tokyo, Japan.
