Hi, my name is Pamela. I’m a bilingual designer specializing in the design, branding & communication needs of the food & beverage industry in Japan. Through design, I help bring together lovers of good food and drink.
The Japanese words Umai (delicious/good) and Kampai (cheers) express the joy in living. Foodies search for the perfect meal and drink. And there are chefs, brewers and other craft persons who spend countless hours to create every day. All so they can say and hear these two words.
My years in Japan have given me many opportunities to utter and experience the culture of Umai and Kampai. Globally, Japan’s food culture is not as much of a mystery as it once was, but the magic is definitely still here.
Here I share news, case-studies, thoughts, tips and info on design, food, drink in both Japan and around the world. Also wetting your appetite with beer cooking recipes and introducing the places to eat and drink in Japan, particularly Shizuoka. And like my brain works, it’ll be a mixed bag in both English and Japanese.
