Kiko Taganashi - TAGANASHI DESIGN

Welcome!

My name is Kiko Taganashi and I have been making things that work for many years. I've worked for start-ups and for well-established companies. I am an innovative, creative graphic artist and web developer with excellent cooperative skills. I am experienced in the fields of advertising, prepress, motion graphics, web design and development, as well as information architecture... If you need a bicycle frame designed and fabricated, I can do that too!
