About us
Established in San Diego in June 2022.

We are JiwaJiwa, a company of unique and intelligent individuals who are passionate about creating the best designs, art, and portraits for you or your business. Our goal is to please our clients through attention to detail, creativity, innovative problem-solving skills, and affordable prices.
"JiwaJiwa" is a Japanese onomatopoeic word that conveys the meaning of "moving slowly but surely." Our logo was created with the imagery of a maze in mind. Just like getting lost in a maze, pondering, and ultimately reaching the goal, we at JiwaJiwa empathize with our clients' needs, contemplate, and strive to provide them with reliable solutions, ultimately creating a positive impact.

The essence of JiwaJiwa lies in the careful and deliberate progress we make towards achieving our objectives. By immersing ourselves in the maze of ideas, we emerge with innovative and impactful solutions that leave a lasting impression. We look forward to embarking on this journey together and turning your vision into a reality.
CEO / Digital Artist / Graphic Designer / Motion Designer

2012-2019: Managed package design, merchandise design, and advertising production for a leading Japanese gaming company at a production firm.

In 2019, my artist career took off in San Diego after relocating from Japan. The vibrant city, distinct from my previous life, pleasantly surprised me and fueled my inspiration. The free-spirited, energetic, and positive people there inspired me to embrace a positive and liberated lifestyle in my artistic pursuits. I delved into creating artwork, participating in exhibitions, and undertaking commissioned projects for three years, which enriched my life and sparked new discoveries, thoughts, and ideas. In June 2022, I was fortunate to meet an exceptional business partner, and together we established a company in San Diego.
