We love Design Festa

Tokyo Big Sight.

Design Festa is a biannual international art even held in Tokyo. It is often difficult for artists to sell their work and reach an audience. Design Festa by bringing all these artists together makes it possible for any artist, even those creating on a small scale to sell work, meet other artists, buy other work and be part of a two day festival celebrating creativity!

Original creativity only and boy does Design Festa deliver! From the cute, to the creepy and from Korea, the festival had everything. A lot was very Japanese with cute bears, anime and computer art and there were some crafty Christmas ornaments but overall the collection consisted of very talented artists.

Bands on two stages entertained during breaks from walking/looking/buying and there were some very cool/interesting costumes getting around. An exhausting day at the end but one which leaves you very inspired.
