I just wanted to share a project that I have been working on for the last year or so since I moved to Japan.

When I arrived, I joined a very small (I was the first core team member after the owner) startup company called Kyash, working on some seriously cool fintech, wanting to help shift to a more digital lifestyle in a heavily cash based society.

I worked on the project as the lead UX / UI designer from some of the very first concepts and sketches right through to it’s launch.

Since those early days, the company has raised around $10m and growing incredibly fast.

Today we launched Kyash app.




Kyash app allows almost instant transfer of funds between friends & family and comes with a Virtual Visa Account so you can spend you money only straight from the app.

Available now in the Japanese App Store.
