Creative Lives in Progress‘ next Pep Talk is set for Wednesday 19th May at 1pm, when they’ll be joined by Tokyo-based creative Lindsay Arakawa as she talks about making international connections, building community and growing your creative network.
Originally born and raised in Aiea, Hawaii, Lindsay currently lives and works in Tokyo as a creative. After graduating from the University of San Francisco with a BA in media studies in 2012, Lindsay started out as a social media intern and then strategist – before moving to Brooklyn, New York, where she oversaw Instagram strategy and creative for media company, Refinery29.
As a fifth-generation Japanese-American, Lindsay decided to move to Japan in 2018 wanting to get a better understanding of her family’s history and background. Since making the move to Tokyo, she has continued to work as a freelance social media strategist for an impressive list of brands including Netflix, Amazon Studios, Pinterest Japan, R/GA Tokyo, VICE Media, Girlboss and WeWork.
In her free time, Lindsay also creates expressive and empowering digital art pieces that combine hand-lettering with her own film photography.
