ABOUT yukiko IDE, Founder & CEO

My career is built on one passion; tell a compelling story to the world through creativity. I create a team based on your needs to effectively tell your own unique brand story in your own voice.

Born in Japan, raised around the world, and by working in an international environment for 15+ years, I’m particularly well-versed in intercultural marketing & production; especially in relation to the Japanese market.

I pride myself in being the bridge between the Japanese market & the US market, and it brings me joy to help American brands take off in Japan and Japanese brands making waves in the US market.

Based in New York, I am often flying around the world to cultivate new connections and resources for my clients.

Ultimately, I connect market and culture to create opportunities for my clients and my team from my international connections.

I look forward to sharing my bilingual communications expertise and connections to help your brand fly!
