Kinjin Story Lab is a Los Angeles-based narrative studio developing original pop culture IPs with a social good focus. Founded in 2014 by Dan Goldman and Liliam Higa, our work spans across animation, video games, print books, digital campaigns and immersive platforms.

KSL was born when the separate paths of husband/wife studio-mates dovetailed into one: the viral success of Dan’s comic-book PRIYA’S SHAKTI—a female Indian superhero standing up for survivors of abuse—revealed to him the global audience’s appetite for hyper-local storytelling to build community and effect social change. As Liliam’s design work moved from physical products to digital, she started seeing UXD principles in all narrative forms, realizing that stories designed around user research are streamlined for maximum human impact.
