As mentioned at the last Tokyo illustrators meet-up, this months event will be a little different.
Thanks to Factoria, two leading figures at design studio AID-DCC (https://www.aid-dcc.com/en/) have kindly offered their time to come and give a talk about finding clients and promoting your work in Japan as well as give some 1-to-1 advice to each person.
‘How to find clients in Japan’ has been a common question at most events (with multiple interesting answers so far) so I hope that this event will be a great opportunity to ask questions and show your work to people that commission illustrators regularly.
When signing up, each attendee will be asked to write down 1 question so that it is guaranteed to be answered during the Q&A.
For the 1-to-1, You are free to use this time however you like. You are welcome to bring your portfolio to show and discuss or perhaps some promotional material that you are using/ planning to use and get some advice.
There will be a friendly translator available during the presentation and for the 1-to-1’s if you need it!
Because of time restrictions, unfortunately we have to restrict attendance to 10 people this time.
There will also be a ticket charge of 2000JPY (which will include a drink)
After the event, people are welcome to join for food and drinks at a local restaurant/ bar in Nishi-Ogikubo. If you fancy joining then there would be an additional fee that can be paid on the night. (around 2000JPY again)
Details for signing up/ payment can be found below. If you have any problems then please let me know!
I hope that this is something useful for everyone that attends and that you get the chance to show your work and discuss it with people that can give you good advice and useful information!
