One last thing…

Being nestled in an area just outside of Tokyo, we do pretty much all of our work here in Japan. However, we are capable of doing (and have done) design work for those located abroad through digital communication and programs such as Skype™ and email. The only downfall to this solution: we don’t have the ability to meet you face-to-face, talk about out our dreams and enjoy a cup of coffee together. On the brighter side, rainchecks don’t have expiration dates and we can always save the post-project celebration for a later date.


A Little Bit (more) About Your Designer

In order for you to make the right decision about a designer (a potentially risky and unsure process), and in accordance with the belief in full transparency (written in the section above), I’d like to tell you a bit more about myself and HBD.

Hi! I’m Nathan. Please call me: Nate. (that’s me up above)

Humble Bunny Design was created at the beginning of 2009 in order to focus my creative efforts as an entity with a slightly different view on the role and importance of graphic design. Ask me about it!

Since I was just a little guy, I’ve always loved drawing and doodling. However, the moment I realized I wanted to use my creativity towards something people could connect to came when I was just 10 years old. I entered a “Save the Environment” drawing contest and won! My design was featured on a road-side billboard for a couple months.

Thousands of people saw my message and (hopefully) experienced a moment of influenced contemplation. At ten years old, I couldn’t really understand the relevance but over the next few years, it came to me. I realized I could design something and affect the lives of potentially infinite people—I could instill thought, provoke emotion and maybe even have a positive influence on those around me.

All that from a measly sketch I drew at my kitchen table when I was 10?!
The idea felt so incredible.

Since that time, I’ve been actively pursuing design for the sake of helping others communicate and grow. Having lived in Japan for a while now, I’ve found I’m a bit of an “otaku” for all things visually beautiful, culturally rich and absorbed in unspoken meaning—after all, those are the things that really make this country unique, right?
