Nihon NY - Episode 15: Yuko Shimizu

#15 - Yuko Shimizu


36 years ago, designer Yuko Shimizu created the iconic Hello Kitty
character when she worked at Sanrio. Now a freelance designer, Shimizu
has just launched the Rebecca Bonbon character, and is touring the globe
to promote the petite French bulldog. While she was in New York, Ms.
Shimizu stopped by Japan Society and spoke with us about her background,
inspiration, and recent creative endeavors.
