Design Festa has been such a great experience for me! Im so happy I got the chance to attend! I was able to look around the venue at the artists, sell some of my goods, and make a bunch of new friends.

I shared a booth with...

Be sure to follow them on instagram! :) They were all so kind and great to be around. Im so happy I met them all and Im looking forward to the next time I see them again!

Design Festa focuses mainly on arts and crafts (small, handmade goods, posters, paintings, jewelry, potteries, etc. etc.) and it so great to see such a large assortment of artists. Its really cool that Japanese people appreciate this stuff a lot more. Compared to conventions back home, I feel like people dont appreciate art as much, as well as, there is a lot of fan art or "fan works" (creating a design, but just using an anime or game character). I really love to see original artwork and original designs and characters. Thats something that I value a lot. Hence why my brand really focuses on original designs and perhaps some inspirations or "flavours" or popular designs.

Here are a few of my customers!: (click to view larger)

I tried to take a couple of photos around the vendor halls. There were SO MANY ARTISTS!!!! It was hard because it was very busy, so I couldn't take too many photos (didnt want to get in anyone's way) Also, some artists preferred no photos at their booth, so I always made sure to ask or double check for a "Photo OK" sign!
