Tamiko Chase Design


Hi there!
My name is Tamiko Chase (she/they). I am a mixed-race Japanese-Canadian designer from Winnipeg, MB; Treaty 1 Territory.

I design both digitally and physically - I also work with installation and illustration. Playful investigation and a considerate approach to research are key components to my practice. I like to work closely with clients to create exciting and uncompromising visual identities and products.

Thanks for stopping by!

Graffiti Art Programming


As part of my work as a Visual Art Instructor with Graffiti Art Programming, I currently work to complete weekly self-directed planning and preparation for youth art workshops.

As part of my work with GAP as a content creator, I help to manage the Graffiti Art Programming and Studio 393 Instagram accounts. I also create other designed works for the Gallery such as posters, pamphlets, and logos.

The Liminality Project


Liminality, as explored in this collection of zines, is the ability to flow between modes of existence, particularly as a part of the BIPOC and mixed BIPOC experience.

This feeling of belonging-to-many or belonging-to-none can be alienating, disorienting, and difficult to navigate. This collection of zines breaks down two of the contributing factors to one’s liminality - language and body - in an attempt to provide insight to those who are unaware of the feeling of a liminal existence, and to provoke introspection to those who know it all too well.

Hotwash


Logo and website design for a proposed podcast project with the Department of National Defence.

Hotwash, as a podcast, would be a platform for RCAF Officers to discuss their experience with leadership within the Air Force and other personal stories and experiences. The logo design evokes the image of a Military Patch and includes a stylized Hercules airplane and vintage microphone.
