Life Changing Moment

BY NANAAKUA .
@ VOL 165 ON JUL 17, 2019

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. 

 

デザイナーのナナアクヤが祖母のカラフルな手毬工芸の写真を撮った時、それが瞬く間にネット上で拡散され、世界中のデザイン、アートやポップカルチャーメディアからの注目を集めるようになるとは想像もしていませんでした。ネットでの急激な拡散が彼女のクエイエイティビティにとってどのような影響を与えたか、話をしていただきます。
