I've been contacted by Maria Winslet at Sense Worldwide who is looking for creatives to be involved in a project they're doing with Pepsi. I can't vouch for this personally, but it sounds like it could be interesting if you have the time to spare. Here's her message:
"I hope you don't mind me getting in touch, my name's Maria and I work for a creative innovation agency in London called Sense Worldwide. I came across your site and wanted to see if you might be interested / able to share a project we're currently setting up as it might be of interest to some of your members, personal friends/contacts, or even yourselves.
We're looking for people aged 18-28 in Tokyo who are working in the creative industries or are making a name for themselves in their free time with their creative thoughts/designs.
Over the last 2 years we’ve been hunting down some of the most interesting and creative individuals around the world to join an online community, the objective: to inspire the design team at one of the worlds most iconic brands… Pepsi.
As we roll into our third year we’re looking for new members around the world and Tokyo is one of the locations we’re especially interested in, so would love to know if you could help spread the project for us? Here's a bit of text to share with anyone that might be interested:
You’ll be the creative spark for Pepsi’s design team - the people they look to for inspiration, and the people who connect them to some of the great things happening in the world’s most exciting cities right now. You’ll also get the chance to create content alongside the brand. The community is also a great chance to make friends and grow your own network, engaging with 50 of the most fun, creative and articulate people we can find around the world.
Over this time we’ll be setting 1-2 activities per month; which will either involve your creative input, or we’ll be asking for your feedback on brand projects and ideas. These will typically be paid $50-$100 depending on the nature of the ask.
Interested? Find out what's involved and tell us a bit about yourself here: https://thesensenetwork.com/projects/view/129
If you have any questions, or suggestions of people/groups I could reach out to in Tokyo please do let me know, I'd be ever so grateful.
