After designing for two ramen posters, I started to make my own ramen stickers with my own sticker machine. I usually use them on my personal belongings like notebook cover and back of the phone. One time, I was using my phone at the subway station. A girl standing next to me saw my ramen sticker at the back of my phone. She came up to me and we actually started talking about ramen, where’s our favorite ramen shops, and so on. We eventually became friends and realized we have a few mutual friends as well.
It was a surprising experience to make a new friend through a simple ramen sticker. To me, the ramen sticker was purely an expression to show how much I love ramen noodles. I didn’t realize it can become a powerful bridge to connect and attract people who love ramen as much as I do!
