AS FEATURED ON

ABOUT FANNY     

My first Kickstarter project is called "The Ramen Poster," and it was inspired by my love for ramen. (which I crave for almost everyday) I tried my first bowl of "real" ramen in college. Since then, I fell in love with not only ramen but also many other delicious Japanese food such as udon, sushi, and sashimi. 

I dine out a lot, that is why I started a Japanese food blog called "Japanese Foodie." Starting a blog really motivates me in trying new things and learning about many Japanese food cultures that I still really appreciate today.

DESIGN INSPIRATION

When I think about "snacks," what first come in my mind is the snacks sealed in a plastic package and you can easily find them in a supermarket. What I didn't know was that many Japanese snacks were used to be freshly made as street food. Luckily, there is a Japanese snack shop that I found called Tamon Tea and they have various types of authentic Japanese snacks such as freshly made omusubi rice balls, mochi, dango, takoyaki, taiyaki, and many more Japanese goodies!

Among all, Sakura Mochi (Cherry Blossom Rice Cake) is what really triggers me in creating this "Japanese Snack Poster." Sakura mochi is a pink rice cake with red bean paste filling. It is wrapped with a pickled cherry blossom leaf, which is also edible.

ABOUT THE SNACK POSTER

Illustration

On this poster, there are 25 different Japanese snacks/street food illustrations. Each illustration was drawn based on real food.

Recipes

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!

Background

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, I want to depict a beautiful night scenery with falling red maple leaves.

As a stretch goal, I introduce an extra background for The Snack Poster. In Japan, cherry blossom flower viewing (Hanami) is definitely one of the best season for outdoor snacks! The practice of picnicking under a blooming sakura was started since the 8th century, and the most well-known snacks are Sakura Mochi and Hanami Dango, which both were named after this Sakura viewing tradition.

THE RAMEN POSTER 

Do you like RAMEN too? The Ramen Poster was my previous Kickstarter project that was inspired by my daily noodle craving! The poster showcases 25 famous ramen recipes across Japan. From popular Tokyo to Sapporo ramen, choose your favorite out of all! The Ramen Poster currently only has one size, which is 16x20. It has two backgrounds to choose from: Festival and Traditional.

STRETCH GOAL

United States Postal Service (USPS) is the shipping carrier I will be using for this project.

SHARING WITH YOUR FRIENDS

This campaign needs everyone's help to reach more stretch goal! Please help spread the word of this project by sharing this Kickstarter campaign with your friends on Facebook and Twitter! :)

Risks and challenges

The major challenge is adding a jumbo-sized poster to this project because the cost of a 24x36 poster is unfortunately double the cost of printing a 16x20 poster.

Thanks to my local printing service, I had a great poster printing job with very quick turnaround time and excellent quality finishes for my last poster project.

If you have any questions, please message me. I read my emails frequently and usually reply within a day.
