I have been fortunate to connect with several talented and ingenuitive entrepreneurs and small business owners in the last few years. I love supporting fellow entrepreneurs and believe in collaboration over competition.
To show my support, I will be featuring BC based small businesses on my social media pages and website for all of 2022.
If you'd like to be featured or know of an awesome business you'd like to see featured, send me a direct message!
What is the name of your business and who is the owner? Tell us a little about your background.
yuuxDesign - A creative agency focusing on web design, branding and SEO.
Owner: Yuu Ewan Shinozaki.
I began my career in customer service, but a few years ago, I was drawn to the design space, especially website. I've always been skilled at listening to people's problems and work with them to reach a solution. My experience successfully leading teams and managing customer expectation led me to consider creative design, and I've been building a career as a driven designer for the last 3 years.
How long have you been operating?
3 + years
What motivated you to start your own business?
I decided to become a brand and web designer because I love designing visual identity, the art of it – and the craft. The way you can design and utilizes emotions to create a connection with consumers and brand loyalty over time. When I and my team design, a sense of brand connection is felt. I felt like this is what I am supposed to do, to help businesses connect with their clients personally and to tell their story.

What makes your business stand out from other businesses offering similar services or products?
We prize ourselves on being storytellers for our clients' brands. Whether through websites, branding or content creation, their customers are able to connect with our clients personally and become loyal followers. Our clients have been featured on magazines, Netflix mainly from websites we created for them.
When it comes to online marketing (especially when working remote), building trust with our clients is priority #1.
We treat clients as if we will be working together for the next 30 years and that's our goal! We always strive to deliver more than promised. We never leave a project unfinished and we never allow a campaign to be anything less than fantastic.
What are your plans for the future of your business?
Ultimately our plan is to be the most relevant business we can. I believe the pandemic has shifted the face-to-face environment that business was still following. Customers want the best possible experience with brands online, whether that’s social media or using a website. Customers are demanding to see more of the business online through photography, video, web content, etc... To help our clients meet that demand, we plan to expand to a physical studio offering our clients spaces and equipments for product photography, video production and content marketing to further promote their brand and products/services.
