_ Kinfolk 10 Year Anniversary, Creative Producer



Summary: Formed in 2008, Kinfolk was created based on a common ground of artisan values, the founders believed that all good things were made by good people. Kinfolk created experiences and products that ranges internationally, working with community, designers, builders, and various professions to embody the very essence of what is called “Kinfolk Life”. To celebrate 10 years of Kinfolk, I’ve decided to invite our peers and family from the last decade to pay homage to those who have been involved, and to highlight the community that it has been built by.

Role: Creative Producer

Challenges: To celebrate a decade of a brand, there were multiple layers that were involved. Kinfolk cover multiple categories across the board, from fashion, music, art, food, etc. Because Kinfolk was multi-faceted we had to involve many collaborators that highlights the past, present, and future of Kinfolk. The challenge was to highlight the diversity in what we did as a brand in a cohesive manner.

Creative Solution: I proposed and presented a full weekend that breaks down the multiple facets of Kinfolk. This involved creating experiences in each of our 3 spaces in Brooklyn.


The Kinfolk Store: Exclusive Collaborations with select brands that have been showcased in the brick and mortar through product collaboration, exhibition, and community sidewalk sale.

Kinfolk 90: During the early years of Kinfolk’s first NY location, friends and family of Kinfolk used the space to showcase their art. This allowed an artisanal community to grow.

To tie in the experience we involved food and music element through people who have shared their taste in the space.
