“Great design is hard work.
Kimiko makes it look easy, like a natural.
She is one of the few that I know who can do that.
I think she gets it.”
- Olaf Beckmann, Photographer.
“I had the pleasure of working with Kimiko for eight years. In addition to creating consistently engaging and lively graphic design work, Kimiko brings a level of customer service to a project that is rarely seen these days. She's a true gem!”

“I have worked with and relied upon Kimiko for close to 15 years, hiring her to complete a variety of packaging projects for my business clients. Her designs are creative and beautiful, and her professionalism is tops! She is a careful listener and always a pleasure to work with.”
- Chelsey Remington
“Working with Kimiko Chan, I never bothered with creative briefs. We’d meet for a glass of wine and a walk through the vineyard and talk about the project. She always asked the right questions and then went back to her studio and produced a brochure or a package or whatever else that perfectly matched style to content. If you want elegant, inspired design, then Kimiko Chan is a perfect match for your luxury wine brand.”

“As a former marketing manager for St. Clement Winery and Stags’ Leap Winery in the Napa Valley, I had the opportunity to work closely with Kimiko on several print projects. Each of these artisan wineries had a long, unique history and very special personality and sense of place that were important to effectively capture in our printed materials. Kimiko immediately understood that sensibility and how to express it in compelling imagery and design. We found the printed materials she created for us were not only elegant and beautiful, but effective and appropriate. Kimiko consistently shepherded projects from concept development to final press check and printing with skill and grace, meeting deadlines and staying within budgets. Her high level of creativity, technical skills, and professionalism, along with her delightful presence and positive approach consistently made her a delight to work with.
It is my pleasure to recommend San Francisco designer Kimiko Chan to any person or entity seeking elegant, persuasive, innovative resolutions to their graphic design needs.”
