We value simplicity, open communication, and concise planning
Tanaka Creative is a Vancouver Island design company created in 2002 by John Tanaka . We value simplicity, open communication, and concise planning. Most of all we emphasize a friendly and personal design service. This is the foundation for all of our projects and client relationships.
Over the years we have grown to accommodate all aspects of design, planning, and execution. Our core passion is identity and brand development. Our place in the industry is earned by our ability to fully understand the goals of each client and develop creative cohesiveness throughout all aspects of your corporate media.
We asked Tanaka Creative to create our print marketing collateral and couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. He took our initial idea and came back with some ideas that really took the impact of the piece to the next level. From the design and development through to the production of the finished piece, John was responsive and diligent, ensuring that every detail was covered. Thanks to Tanaka Creative, the finished promotion was modern, elegant, and sleek. We took the collateral to a major industry tradeshow and received many compliments on the brochure. It was so good, in fact, that it is now up for a major design award. I would recommend Tanaka Creative to anyone looking for a professional and talented graphic designer who knows how to get the job done right.

I approached Tanaka Creative in 2007 to create my company’s logo and marketing materials. I was still in the planning stages of my new business, so all they had to go on were my business’ name and slogan. The resulting package that Tanaka Creative came up with absolutely blew me away. Let me tell you, professional business cards and letterhead make a huge difference when you’re trying to secure financing.They definitely helped to get my foot in the door at the banks that eventually financed my startup, who otherwise may not have taken me seriously. Most important though, is my web site, which accounts for over 50% of my business. Not only is it beautiful, it is incredibly efficient and functional. So much so that my clients rave about it, and it has also been featured at the largest conference in my industry for its innovative features.
I look at the websites and other marketing of my competitors, and I consider myself very fortunately to have found Tanaka Creative.
