Tamiko Chase

Graphic Design

Tamiko Chase Kavanagh (they/them) is a designer and artist from Winnipeg, Manitoba - Treaty 1 Territory. They ♥ bold design and even bolder narratives.

Holding a BFA (Hons.) degree from the School of Art Design Program at the University of Manitoba, Tamiko designs both digitally and physically - they also work with installation and illustration. Playful investigation and a considerate approach to research are key components to their practice. As a queer, mixed-race Japanese-Canadian artist, the intersections of race, culture, and gender also play a crucial role in Tamiko’s work. These intersections, which are usually highlighted in their personal work, also act as inspiration and as the guiding principles for their design pursuits. When designing, they like to work closely with clients to create exciting and uncompromising visual identities and products.
