Kevin Palmer co-founded Kin Design Agency in 2008 with the idea to build a design studio around a small team of experts, made up of designers, developers and makers. His own interest lies within the materiality of experience, often blending traditional craft with contemporary technology.
Kin has a workshop as the heart of the studio, where we create prototypes, models, R+D, 3D printing, and electronics for interactive physical objects and installations. We experiment with mixing digital technologies with physical making and craft.
Kin’s clients range from Museums, Arts and Cultural institutions such as The Science Museum, National Maritime Museum, Damian Hirst, The RAF Museum, The Imperial War Museum, The Design Museum and The Eden Project. Also for brands such as Google, Samsung, Nokia, Selfridges, Ted Baker, John Lewis, Boden and Olivela.
Whilst at Kin Kevin has also taught at a number of leading institutions including Goldsmiths College, The RCA, Camberwell, St Martins, Nottingham and Strelka School Of Architecture in Moscow.
Previous to Kin, Kevin was Creative Director of Digital Communications at Imagination, Europe’s largest independent design agency where he delivered numerous large scale interactive experiences around the world.
