Friday Favorites | Akizo Designs

Hello, and welcome to another edition of our designer feature series on The Digital Press blog in 2019 — Friday Favorites! This year, as you know, we’ve been learning a bit more about each of our amazingly-talented designers by having them share some of their favorite things with us each week.

This week, the spotlight is on Akiko Iinuma of Akizo Designs. As one of our newer designers at TDP, this is actually the first time she’s been featured here on the blog.

I asked her to share some of her Favorite Things with us, and here’s what she had to say…


My favorite thing is cats! I love to take photos or movies of cats I find on my journey…”

Here’s a short video she took of a cat that lives in the Yougenin Temple in Kyoto, Japan. I love that you can hear her talking sweetly to it in Japanese!

She goes on to say, “I also love playing and watching tennis games. I’ve been a fan of Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori for a long time.”

When I asked her about what she liked to eat, she replied, “My favorite food is Japanese food, like sushi!”


If you’re not already familiar with Akizo Designs‘ product offerings at The Digital Press, she has a lot of amazing kits and templates in her shop at TDP. Her templates feature large geometric shapes, perfect to show of your photographs… and her papers and elements are always very bright and colorful. I also really like her black and white kits, elements, and word art — perfect to compliment vintage photographs, or those you’ve color-corrected to be grayscale, etc.

Here’s a quick look at a few of my favorite products from the Akizo Designs store at TDP…

And here’s a handful of examples of projects that use Akizo Designs‘ products, so you can see how lovely and versatile her designs are…
