Tae Hatayama, Art Director/Graphic Designer
I’ve been working as a design professional for over 15 years. As a native Japanese living in the US, I refer to my multicultural background as the root of my aesthetics. I take a fresh approach to each project, and I draw inspiration from our communications and keeping an open mind for new possibilities.
Since graduating from the Academy of Art of University in San Francisco, I never stopped pushing forward and refining my skills. I believe that excellent design inspires feelings, communicates clearly, and timeless.
My goal is to find the perfect balance of functionality and beauty to express clients’ identities, beliefs, and goals.
