Hi, call me Akemi!

If you’re reading this, it’s a pleasure to meet you! My name is Letícia Akemi, but you can just call me Akemi. I was born in Londrina, Brazil, and grew up in Japan. Currently, I live in London, UK where I have just graduated with a BA (First Class Hons) in Illustration for Communication at Ravensbourne University London.

I’ve been working as a graphic designer with background in packaging design, but I also love spending my time experimenting with different mediums such as painting, animation, 3D, and digital illustration.

As a designer...

I have a broad visual language which allows me to adapt to different professional briefs, I’m very passionate about helping D2C and B2B brands to improve their visual identity through simple and effective design.  

Social political issues and cultural identity are the main underlying themes throughout my practice as a storyteller, I also love exploring works around nostalgia and humor.  

My main inspiration comes from traditional Japanese art and folklore, Brazilian art deco, and Korean graphic design.

As a big fan of communication and branding, I’m always looking to collaborate with companies that are looking for a new and fresh look to their brands through illustration and design. If you would like to get in touch, feel free to contact me ☺

What do I do:

○ Brand Design        ○ Illustration
○ 2D Animation        ○ Packaging Design
○ Graphic Design        ○ Character Design
