If you love something chic, stylish and minimalist, we bet you’ll love akr Design Studio‘s Etsy shop!

The person behind akrDesignStudio is the lovely designer, Akiko K.Ruiz. Since she was a kid, Akiko loved to make drawings. She took a bachelor’s degree in graphic design from Joshibi University of Art and Design in Japan and moved to Southern California to start her career where she worked in the apparel industry for a few years as a freelance designer. Then in November 2014, Akiko decided to pursue her passion and make her dreams happen by creating her own stationery line.

So, akr DesignStudio was born! She puts her beautiful hand drawn illustrations into stationery items, totes, journals, and a lot more! Akiko’s goal is to deliver a smile to people with her inspiring and one-of-a-kind works. And for her, a smile on her customer’s face means mission accomplished! She has also been featured on different blogs like Collective Hub, Mollie Makes, Stationery Magazine, and Domino Magazine!
