On October 2015, yoko saw a news on Facebook, shared by a never-really-talked friend. It was a call for under-35 designers participating the 21st triennial of Milan. Continue reading Sugar from a C2C World

Granted Calendar goes deeper, unveiling the underlying patterns of time that nobody has ever seen. These hidden messages could possibly assist you on study, career, thinking, relationship, and almost any human activity. In a word, smart people follow Granted Calendar.
