Francesca Eichmann

Born and raised in Tokyo, Francesca has always been fascinated with the changing of brands across different cultures. Spending 14 years in Japan has allowed her to develop a unique perspective and a creative outlook on the world of branding.    


Moving to Switzerland after many years in Tokyo she attended the International School of Zug and Luzern. Upon finishing school she moved to Scotland in order to earn her Bachelor’s in Interior Design from the University of Edinburgh (ECA). The recipient of many awards, Francesca designed and was awarded a prize for her exhibition design at Graduate Fashion Week in London. Honing her skills in interior design, Francesca worked with clients at a boutique design firm specializing in bespoke kitchens.    


New York City was the next logical step for Francesca. She continues to use her unique experiences to influence her work, while diving into the world of brands.
