When Designer Nana Akua photographed her grandmother’s colorful Japanese Temari craft balls, little did she know that she was about to attract worldwide attention for both her grandmother and herself when the images went viral on design, art, and pop culture publications across the internet. She’ll share her story and how going viral on the internet became a life-changing moment in her creative process.
