This blog is dedicated to the sub culture ‘Ganguro’ of Japan. Ganguro translates as “black faced”.
AREA OF INTEREST: The impacts of limited information on Graphic Designers and Magazine Journalist, this is why I have chosen to do the Ganguro culture as a prime example of the challenges for people to find adequate amount of information on the subject on the internet. However, it does create opportunities for people like me who aspire to be a Graphic Designer to have the ability to create an intersting and new approach to getting information about the Ganguros.
The aim of this blog is to investigate the following:
- The impact of contemporary media such as ‘Egg’ magazine of Japan, Facebook and Youtube.
- How contemporary media has brought the culture to the West.
- The challenges of insufficient information regarding the Ganguro’s for people who are interested in the group.
- History and Formation of the Ganguro
