KINSHO is a line of cloth bound, archival photo albums sold at Paper-Source and other retailers. I collaborated with the product development team to name the line, select color ways, and create the logo, brand story and packaging. The albums were made by a Japanese vendor using Japanese bookbinding traditions. KINSHO means 'gold prize' in Japanese, and we liked that the function of the albums is to create a 'kin show' (I love puns!). The bright gold foil with the KINSHO character makes expresses a classic, quality design.
