Design that sounds good and looks even better on paper
The Kami-Men by Kami Play are three amusing envelopes that look like faces wearing wrestling masks. Each mask’s design draws on a traditional Japanese concept: the red one looks like the decorative mizuhiki paper-cords found on Japanese gift envelopes, while the blue and yellow ones bear motifs based on gourds and arrows, which are lucky symbols in Japan.
In a collaboration with Cement Produce Design — the creative team behind Trace Face cups, See Oh Ribbon bookmarks and other contemporary interior goods — the industrial-parts manufacturer has made its very first original product: the Alma Aroma Pin.
