About

Takohako Designs is the journey of an octopus, a box, and a Photoshop.

Takohako Designs started in 2010 as a place to sell the felt things I made for fun. The name is a combination of the Japanese words tako (octopus) and hako (box). In Japanese "takohako" doesn't really mean anything, except maybe a box that you catch cephalopods with... But I doodled a little octopus in a box, and that became the logo! The Japanese writing on the box in the logo simply says "takohako".

Later, with profits from my felt creations and some other savings, I was able to purchase a button press. From there I began making all kinds of button designs. Because I was designing and printing everything for my buttons digitally, I started experimenting with other paper products. Now I also offer lots of puntastic greeting cards, because there are few things closer to my heart than puns and whimsical food illustrations.

I love creating all the stuff I make for Takohako Designs, but my real passion and love is for comics. You can see that there's a couple of comic-related items for sale in my shop, but not too many just yet. It's easier for me to commit the time to make a simple greeting card or postcard illustration than it is for me to fully invest myself in a quality comic story, so it may be a little while before you see much more. But I hope to share more with you someday!

Well, that's just about everything there is to know about my shop. If you have any questions for me, don't hesitate to get in touch. : )
