This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Fanny’s first Kickstarter project is called “The Ramen Poster,” and it was inspired by her love for ramen. (which she craves for almost everyday) She tried her first bowl of “real” ramen in college. Since then, she fell in love with not only ramen but also many other delicious Japanese food such as udon, sushi, and sashimi. She dines out a lot, that is why she started a Japanese food blog called “Japanese Foodie.” Starting a blog really motivates her in trying new things and learning about many Japanese food cultures that she still really appreciates today.
On this poster, there are 25 different Japanese snacks/street food illustrations. Each illustration was drawn based on real food. Underneath each illustration, there is a list of ingredients of what each snacks are made out of. Sometimes, gathering a few ingredients will already make you a delicious homemade Japanese snack! During Autumn season, Japanese maple tree leaves are spattered all over the streets of Japan. (There’s also fried maple leaves snacks in Japan!) For this poster, she wants to depict a beautiful night scenery with falling red maple leaves. All posters will be printed in USA. Paper source is sustainable with 10% recycled content 10pt. non-gloss surface.
