What is a "Graphig" ?

Graphig is a brand by Cospa. It combines graphic design with a figurine, and becomes a somewhat stylish yet caricaturized character. Graphic designer Nasos from the design group NC Teikoku is in charge of the concept design. They have a broad line of products, including the paper figures in this workshop, such as plastic figurines, key rings, and stuffed animals.



  1. Please get a blank Graphig at the reception and have a seat.
  2. Let's draw and color on your blank Graphig with coloring pens and pencils by referring to the sample!
  3. When you are done drawing and coloring, let's put the Graphig together!
  4. When all parts come together, you're done!
