Project Description


Lifestyle Product Photography UK

Kiko and gg are the two ranges of the wooden toys designed and manufactured by a Japanese design company formerly know as Kukkia. Kiko+gg have been designing toys in Japan for over 7 years.  I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with the creative and marketing teams to produce a number of lifestyle product photography photoshoots in London and Japan.

The creative advertising images were created to be used on the websites as well as print communications and social media channels. The images needed to be creative, on-trend  to portray kiko+gg as a fashionable children’s brand.

Our models are not professional models and just local children that we know, so the images are very natural and spontaneous. The toys were very popular with the children and are also sustainable, beautifully designed products. The designer and creative director Kaz Shiomi usually flies to London to attend the shoots which always take place in Sheen House and always brings an unexpected element which make each creative product photoshoot so special. The wooden toys and my advertising images are regularly featured in fashion and children’s magazines around the world, and they often partner with companies on joint projects. Previous partnerships have included Muji, Lanvin, Bon Point and Air France to name a few. Kukkia’s Usagi (modelled after Kaz pet rabbit) can also be found in the London Design Museum.

“She is an absolute pleasure to work with. Very professional and considerate, she listened to what we wanted but also came up with some wonderful ideas to show off our toys. She is very warm and makes models and clients alike feel comfortable: Highly recommended *****” Kim Thomerson, Manager, Kukkia
