Hello! My name is Sasha Atsuko. While I wear many hats, I specialize in visual & web design. 

共感 (Kyoukan) is Japanese for Empathy. I use this in my logo because I believe it is the foundation for not only design but for life. Truly taking the time to learn about others and to put myself in another’s shoes, to see what they see, feel what they feel, and experience things as they do makes me a better designer and person. Accomplishing this through asking questions, in-depth research, strategic planning, deep listening, open communication and creative thinking. All in the effort, to create great user experience and foster memorable relationships between brands and their clients.
