Sakiko, better known as Kiko, is a multifaceted creative with a focus on design & photography. Prior to joining the Dos Mundos Team Kiko planted her feet in the Bay Area & immersed in the scene there as a multimedia artist having her work displayed in numerous galleries. When taking the reins on the marketing design for a particular show, Kiko realized she could combine both worlds of the art hemisphere. She continues to show her work in galleries and has had her eye behind the viewfinder & working with others in the Bay Area and Austin to help strengthen their brand. Kiko’s core motivation is to help others through her community through design & collaboration. She believes designers are problem solvers & hold the key to creative solutions in any industry.
