What you'll do
You'll design and make your own Kamon, which is a traditional Japanese family crest. You’ll be working with a professional logo master. To inspire your design ideas, we’ll take a walk a retro district in Shibuya, Tokyo and I’ll explain why those places stimulate my creativity. Then we’ll move to a café and start Japanese crest making. I’ll show you some documents of history of Japanese crests and how they developed and you’ll be given templates of traditional Japanese crest component stickers made from unique Japanese paper called washi. We’ll create our own Japanese crests using the templates or I’ll help you to draw your own design.
I’m a freelance design director and an experienced graphic designer. I studied in the U.K., where I directed visual roles including making a shop logo as a director. I was attracted to British family crests before focusing on Japanese crests, which are very cool and different. I hope I can convey the charm of Japanese crest design to you as we make yours together.
Japanese crest templates I'll provide all craft supplies necessary for crest-making.
