Kathrin Kecht

Kathrin 'intense 'kat' eyes' Kecht is new to the creative scene in Tokyo. Perhaps you noticed the illustration she did for my About page? With a background in language studies and art, she started out as a translator/interpreter, and writer before adding web and graphic design, illustration, and photography to her skill set. So you could say she’s been just a little bit busy over the last year!

Now she’s back in business with My Bungu Box, designing a wonderful new pattern for the boxes’ packaging paper. I love the simple design, featuring different symbols that I love or are meaningful to me. I hope you’ll like it as much as I do.

Random facts: 

  1. Kathrin likes puns, which earned her the nickname “Punda🐼”. She even published a book about Japanese puns and wordplay!

  2. Kathrin has a 2nd Dan in Taekwondo (so be sure to laugh at her puns...)
