We believe that design is an approach to solving human problems. By learning from each other, we can continue to grow this practice across different local and international communities throughout Japan.
Whether you’re a designer, a developer, a researcher, or a business person, an interest in design as a means to create extraordinary human experiences, meaningful services, and solutions to human problems is all that’s needed to join our open community.

What is Shinayaka? (Re)defining Resilience in Japan
How do you define resilience?
In the months following the spread of COVID-19, Chelsea Hostetter, Yukino Kohmoto, and Dorota Tisnek organized a completely remote ethnographic study in Japan that spanned two months. The goal: speak to creatives living and working across the country and understand their definition of resilience.
In this reflective presentation, specially pre-recorded for Interaction Design Day 2020, hear the team share the findings of their study: struggles, stories, and insights around survival, both at work and at home.
What you'll take away from this talk:
- Tips for running remote bilingual research
- Unique strategies for cultivating your own resilience
- Inspiration from quotes shared by fellow creatives
