Meeting Tokyo's Creatives

It was worth all the trouble just for sentences like “if we would have more minimal things and thinking, it would be better for everyone” (says designer Hiromi Maeo), or “curiosity and love are most important for creating something” (believes comic strip artist and author Erika Kobayashi). This multi-faceted book project went through many stages: first of all, researching Tokyo’s creatives, then, overcoming the challenge of approaching them, to develop the right questions to ask, and finally, to interview and portray them. And ultimately, to design and produce eleven amazing booklets. Wow! What a rewarding job this has been. The project provides a host of very human insights into the working world and private life of those outstanding Japanese creatives. Thanks very much, dear Klasse für Ideen! Dear reader, here you are! We wish you a wonderful time exploring these exciting booklets.
