Design Festa Autumn 2011
Just a few photos from last Sundays Design Festa, a wonderful event for makers, artists, designers and craftsmen from all over Japan (and quite a few from abroad) held twice yearly in Tokyo’s Odaiba district. There’s hundred if not thousands of exhibitors, some great, some very enthusiastic.
I got there early since I didn’t have much time to spend but even being 30 minutes early I met with this massive line of people, literally thousands of people lining up to get it. And I didn’t even have a prepaid ticket to get it! Luckily, for once in my life, being unprepared turned out to be the best thing since all these people lined up all had prepaid tickets! The line at the ticket booth was about 25 people and moved very quickly. I was in in no-time! I have already posted one paper crafter, and here’s one photo of a young lady designer and illustrator. I couldn’t look closer at her work since she was… not very talkative. For as long as I watched she stood immobile with what I thought was a bag but later I noticed her walking around with it, some sort of mask. Quite a few people watched me take her photo. From the look of it, it seems she had some really nice illustrations in her booth! Maybe next time I’ll catch her without the mask. If anyone talked to her, please let me know!
