A talented photographer and artist, Mariko is also the creative lead on all of Clarity’s most ambitious branding projects, from website rebuilds to creating a platform for an online communications training academy. Her artwork not only also appears in the Clarity New York office, but in our marketing materials, and on our social media platforms as well.

Mariko attended BU on a full athletic scholarship, where she was a member of the Track and Field team. When Mariko is not at our office in the Flatiron District, she can be found at the beach on Fire Island.
