Shodai Kayama / カヤマ ショウダイ

About Me

My name is Shodai Kayama — creative technologist & design researcher based in London and Tokyo. I design new experience by weaving analog/digital interaction, storytelling and people’s creativity with playfulness.

I have just graduated from MArch Design for Performance and Interaction at Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. And, I am looking for collaborators and new opportunities that I can apply my interaction design skill. So, feel free to drop me a message

My interest is designing new interaction that naturally adapts to daily experience. In order for this, my practices tend to be technical but also superficially simple and playful. I believe this approach can broaden people’s perspective about future interaction and technology.

Current CV is here.
