About this project
"Thankfully, there’s now a beautiful poster of the 25 most common to help you keep track, and maybe even help you conquer any [ramen] you haven’t tried."
"There are so many versions of ramen that I didn’t even knew existed that I want to eat them all right now."
"Fanny, a designer from Berkeley, California, is taking the universal appeal of ramen and turning it into art... A dedicated ramen enthusiast herself, Fanny’s passion project is proof that ramen, like chess, is far more than just the sum of its parts. A bowl of ramen isn’t just a dish, it’s a culture."
"Ramen is one of the most versatile noodle dishes around. Luckily, for the overwhelmed ramen aficionado, there's a cheat sheet."
"Are you ready to take your ramen love to the next level? Just think: If someone walks into your house whose ramen vocabulary is limited to “Maruchan” and “Top Ramen,” you can direct them to the gorgeous graphic print hanging on your wall."
I am a noodle freak. I crave for noodle almost everyday. I like to try different kinds of noodle, but nothing can beat ramen! Recently, I finally tried Ivan's ramen, one of the best ramen in the world, during a one-night event at Bar Tartine in San Francisco. Feel free to visit my blog to read about my Ivan Ramen dining experience!
I used to eat so much instant ramen when I was little, and I tried my first bowl of ramen noodle at a restaurant called Ajisen Ramen. It was great, but I wanted to explore more types of ramen.
I personally think ramen has unlimited potentiality, I've heard there's even pineapple ramen too. However, there is an authenticity in ramen type. For example, no one would say ramen from Northern Japan will have similar taste compare to Southern Japan. The resources and histories are different, which created their own ramen culture.
I wanted to list out as many delicious ramen recipes as I can, and I selected the top 25 most favorite ramen recipes including the famous Tantanmen and Tsukemen.
About The Ramen Poster
What makes a bowl of ramen delicious-looking is the beautiful presentation of the bowl, broth, noodle, and toppings that are carefully made and arranged by the chef. This is how I wanted this project to be presented: a poster full of tasty ramen that I wanted to take a bite right away!
The Ramen Poster also has its educational part. While different parts of Japan have their own proud recipes, I wanted to show them on this poster too.
For example, in Yamagata, the local specialty cold ramen is very popular. (even in Winter) Sometimes, there are even ice cubes in the beef broth to keep it cold.
The Ramen Poster comes in two different backgrounds: Festival & Traditional. Festival version has a more vibrant theme with an illustration of ramen in the background. Traditional version, on the other hand, has a traditional Japanese theme with a background of bamboo brush painting.
Dimension: 16 inch x 20 inch
Poster Paper: 10pt. cover with gloss finish
Personal stamp on the FRONT or BACK of poster
Risks and challenges
The main challenge of this project is funding. Once this project is funded, I have already contact a local printing service for a quick turnaround time. I am also familiar with packaging posters, shipping tubes, and delivery process. If you have any questions, please message me. I read my emails frequently and will usually response within the day.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
when I click on the $27 pledge option on the right side of the Kickstarter page, I get an error message: "Sorry, please enter a pledge amount greater than or equal to $30 USD to ship this reward to United States," why do I have to pay at least $30?
This was a Kickstarter issue, and I believe the issue is fixed already. But in case it happens again, here's the explanation.
When I first created this project, the reward is $27 and it doesn't include shipping because there will be different costs for shipping to US and international.
For US shipping, it will cost $3 USD
For International shipping, it will cost $13 USD.
So if you receive that message, simply add your shipping cost manually to complete your pledge. Thank you!
You can choose your background on the survey that I will send out when the Kickstarter campaign ends.
The survey is used to collect all the information I need from you to ship out your reward. It will include questions like shipping address, which background do you prefer, etc.
When this project is funded, your credit card will be charged with the amount of pledge you made. If there's an error with your credit card, Kickstarter will only allow ONE WEEK for backers to fix these errors. View this link to fix tthe issue:
