ABOUT







Chiharu Tanaka

Chiharu Tanaka was born and raised in Japan. She completed her Bachelor's degree of Textile Design in Tokyo and worked at design companies for a few years. She subsequently received her MFA in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2009, and remained in San Francisco area ever since. She worked as a graphic and type designer for John McNeil Studio (2009-2010), Landor Associates (2009-2010), Psy/Ops (2010-present) and Morisawa (2016-present). Her typefaces:

  • The roman and ornamental retail typeface family HaruNami (2010, Psy Ops). She writes: HaruNami (spring wave) is a family of decorative typefaces which fuse together Japanese ornamentation with the Roman alphabet. My purpose with this project is to find a balance between the designs of the West and the East. My hope is to share the Japanese aesthetic with an International audience. HaruNami has a unique stylistic system that ranges from Simple to Ornate.
  • Corporate typefaces for Tokyu Hands (an icon set, dated 2002), Landor (San Diego Zoo), Psy/Ops (Chevrolet; Bollinger Motors). Louis, done for Chevrolet under the creative direction of Rodrigo Cavazos at Psy/Ops, is a six-style DIN-like industrial grotesque for Latin and Cyrillic.
  • The corporate typefaces Reitmans Script.
  • Tegaki. An experimental brush script.
  • Mie. A hand-drawn font that attempts to obfuscate the border between letters and art.
  • Txt 1010 (2014). An experimental typeface to make fancy borders using opentype prowess. Done together with Carolina de Bartolo while working at Psy/Ops.
