Kenya Hara is a Japanese designer, curator, author, educator and renowned design thinker. Hara graduated from the Musashino Art University in 1983 with a master’s degree in design and soon after, joined the Nippon Design Center. In 1991, he founded his current practice, Hara Design Institute, a design think-tank working across all fields of media and design – from graphics and products to architecture and exhibitions. Hara is the author of several notable books on design, including Designing Design, White, and Ex-Formation, and has curated several highly acclaimed exhibitions. In 2000 he held, “Re-Design: The Daily Products of the 21st Century,” that made that case that the resources for exceptional design are found in the context of the ordinary and the every-day. In 2001, Hara became a member of Japanese lifestyle brand MUJI’s advisory board and began acting as its art director. As art director, Hara ushered in a new vision for Muji that embraced “emptiness,” rather than “simplicity.” It is that “emptiness” that leaves room for creativity and imagination. Over the course of his career, Hara has created groundbreaking design solutions for countless globally renowned companies, organizations and events including the French luxury brand Kenzo, the ‘98 Winter Olympic games, and Muji. He is currently president of the Japan Graphic Designers Association and a professor at Musashino Art University.

Mafundikwa’s book, Afrikan Alphabets: the Story of Writing in Africa, was published in 2004. Besides being of historical importance, it is also the first book on Afrikan typography. His first film, Shungu: The Resilience of a People, a feature-length documentary had its world premiere at 2009’s International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA). It won the prestigious Ousmane Sembene Award at Zanzibar International Film Festival and Best Documentary at Kenya International Film Festival both in 2010 and has screened at some of the top film festivals in the world. The film is an objective, in-depth look at the causes and effects of Zimbabwe’s political and economic decline through the voices of ordinary Zimbabweans. As an educator, Mafundikwa urges African designers to learn from the past and draw on the history of Africa’s written words and symbology for inspiration. “The dream,” he says, “is for something to come out of Africa that is of Africa.”
