Mark Shikada

Hello there! I'm a Japanese born, British fusion with an indistinguishable accent, a love for technology and an affinity with wildlife. I'm a problem solving, introspective, philosophical ponderer – driven by latin partner dancing, inline skating and a deep fascination with our social world.

Above anything I can create for you, you'll be getting my passion for the craft in every collaboration. As a creative spanning across multiple disciplines, my deeper value is embedded throughout my work.
Client Testimonials
"I initially needed Mark to help me design a logo for a new brand I had been developing. His ability to identify the core values and heart of the brand was impressive and from there, we worked closely together to create something I'm very proud of! Not only does it look excellent, it all serves a purpose which has manifested into a solid foundation on which I can build a strong brand identity.

He has been dependable across multiple areas of design and branding, both creatively and technically. What I’ve noticed is that he’s determined to nail a brief and takes genuine pride in the execution.

I've since taken him on as part of the core team and I would recommend his professional talents to anyone seeking design work."

"I did not hesitate asking Mark to be the photographer on our wedding day. He met me and my fiancée before the wedding to discuss details, asked us for our desired photographs and was extremely professional at all times. He was always easy to communicate with in case we wanted to discuss any specific items. The day of the wedding he arrived earlier than us and followed us everywhere capturing unique moments that will forever remind us of the perfect day we had. 

All of our guests also complimented how friendly and hard working Mark was and have also shared their admiration on the quality of the pictures taken. I am very pleased with Mark’s work and would recommend him 100%"

"As groomsman at our wedding, my brother Mark had kindly agreed to be our backup photographer free of charge. I recall that while the hired photographer remained mostly stationary in the middle of the scene, Mark hovered the perimeter, seamlessly switching from one vantage point to another. Charmingly joyous all the while, putting us at perfect ease to be at our most natural."

"While the photos from the hired photographer were satisfactory, Mark’s photos moved my wife to tears. Miraculously, Mark had captured every notable moment at its peak of absolute sweet. The most subtle of occurrence had not escape his eye, framed in the most dynamic composition. We could not contain our pleasure, we were ecstatic that day! Mark’s instinct for organic beauty is a gift which evidently extends to his taste in editing. His photo enhancements are in perfect sync with nature’s tones. Oh yes, if you’re lucky enough to book Mark, he will deliver the goods!"

Niña & James


"We've known Mark for 10 years now and have always been amazed at his keen eye for details and the quality of his photographs. Although he was present at our wedding as a guest, the moments he captured are fantastic and full of emotions. I would happily recommend Mark to immortalise the great events of your life!"

Charlotte & Florian


"Mark is a dear friend of ours and despite being a guest at our wedding, he enjoyed going around and snapping lots of fantastic pics! We were amazingly surprised and pleased to see how beautifully he managed to catch every aspect of our day, giving a second life to our emotions and feelings. I would definitely trust and recommend Mark for your big occasion!”

Donata & Mathieu


"Mark joined us as a creative artworker to help us out with artworking and visualisation. During these two weeks while he was with us, Mark was able to handle the demanding workload with his can do attitude. I find him a pleasure to work with. I am most impressed by his attention to details and great visualisation skills. I think Mark is a great addition to any potential employer's team.”

"I found Mark to be consistently pleasant, tackling all given assignments with dedication and a smile. Besides being a joy to work with, Mark is a diligent worker who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. He has worked well alongside our web developer and with an outsourced team in India to deliver a complete new design for our website. Since we brought Mark in to work with us in house, he has designed all our printed and online media including posters, banners, flyers and all other promotional prints. These designs were all catered to my liking and his attention to detail was evident throughout.”
