(PROFILE) I’m Ayaka B. Ito, an independent designer and illustrator based in New York City and Tokyo, specializing in type-driven brand identities, editorial design, illustrations, and typefaces. I’m also a graduate of Type@Cooper’s Extended and Condensed Program. 


I specialize in bringing new and established brands to life by elevating visuals with refined craftsmanship and thoughtful attention to detail. I work closely with clients to define the best approach in partnership. And depending on the project needs, I also collaborate with my network of talented creatives to offer a holistic experience.

With over a decade of experience, I’ve previously worked at creative studios NR2154, creech, The Working Assembly, and RoAndCo. 

Let’s work together. email@ayakaito.com
