Hi, I’m Kumi! I am a Graphic Designer, I create unique and fresh designs with my Japanese identity.
I have been working as a Graphic Designer for 5 years. During this time I worked at Matchbox as a designer/gallery assistant. And I have worked at Stone Street Studios as a Graphic Designer for the film 'Ghost in the Shell'. I created Graphics for set decorating, props, costumes and vehicles, including logos, posters, vinyl stickers and packaging which were both Japanese and English in language and style.
After working at Stone Street Studios, I got an opportunity to work at phil&teds as a Graphic Designer. I worked on the creative requests from our product marketers, sales support team, quality control team, and retailers from all over the world. I have created web banners, graphics for EDM, social media banners, motion graphics, print advertising, Instruction, Packaging, POS and In-store banners.
As a freelance Graphic Designer, I have worked for a wide range of clients, including Garage Project, Wellington City Council, Japanese Embassy, AMOUREUX in Taiwan, Hamasaku in L.A. and Alpine Wine Co. I have the skills and experiences of both digital and print; Branding, Packaging Design, Digital illustration, Publication Design, Typography Design, and Motion Graphics.
