Hi! I’m Genki Hagata. I’m an interdisciplinary artist and designer. I balance a design business with my art practice and enjoy merging the two in front-end web development.
I have a formal education in photography, graphic design and digital media art; which has led me to love all forms of design, and code. I’ve worked with everything from print design, web design, animation, video, and web design. I have been an Art Director, project manager, leader, UI/ UX Designer, Production artist, and web developer at different times. I have a passion for exploration and continue to learn something new everyday that I can use on a future project.
Off the computer, I strive to be an athlete. I cycle, run, and race motorcycles. I love cycling and am constantly pushing to ride longer and further; which is evident in my Pedal California project. I believe that even though I (and other designers/developers) can sometimes spend an entire day on the computer, staying active and healthy is important for both work and life.
