CDB Kamon

The RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology is delighted to release the files for a series of design materials fusing motifs from Japanese traditional kamon (family crests) and developmental biology. These designs were featured in a limited collection of smart phone skins that have been distributed at CDB exhibitions and events. The designs can be downloaded for use in making your own smart phone or tablet computer skins, decals, transfers, or other original creations.
