Best of the Chippewa Valley” by Asahi Nagata

Asahi Nagata is a Japanese designer who now lives in Minneapolis with her husband and office manager/cat, Jounrie Tunamelt.

She has been focusing on corporate branding, Web design, and illustrations. In her home office, she works on new and existing projects. For the last three years, Asahi has worked as a Seb designer for Gear8 DESIGN Inc. in Sapporo, Japan. She is currently a graphic design intern at Charles S. Anderson Design. Illustrations for this issue are part of a custom piece, created based on the relaxing, cozy feeling of Eau Claire.

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a letter
