April 13, 2011 Leave a comment
Japan has inspired designers for many generations and it is where the “Pecha Kucha 20 images x 20 seconds” show-and-tell event format was born, and it has gone on to inspire designers to get together in 400 cities around the world, to share their creativity at more than 1000 events each year.
Japan has inspired us all, now is it our turn to “Inspire Japan.”
