Get Back To Tohoku

Description theinspirationroom

East Japan Railway’s Tohoku Shinkansen brand, formed to attract visitors to the Tohoku Region in Japan, won Gold for Design at the 2012 Clio Awards and a Gold Design Lion at Cannes International Festival of Creativity. The Tōhoku region, in the north of Honshu, was deeply affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Travel to Akita, Aomori, Fukushima, Iwate, Miyagi and Yamagata was connected with rebuilding in an integrated branding exercise. The bodies of Shinkansen train cars were painted with dynamic designs that served to connect the regions of Eastern Japan. Posters and billboards encouraged visitors to get back to Tohoku. Train tickets were sold as a Tohoku support pass package.

The campaign successfully gathered a large number of travellers and followers among a demographic that had been difficult to entice. An overwhelming response was received during the launch of the event via online social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The promotion strengthened ties between clients and fans through helping to extend encouragement to locals affected by the disaster and instil hope in local children.

Can We Change our Behavior to Make Us Happier?

Description illusionscene360

This is a fun and creative title sequence for “The Happy Film” (scheduled to be released in 2012). It was directed by reknown designers Stefan Sagmeister and Hillman Curtis, produced by Ben Nabors, and cinematography by Ben Wolf.

 

Notes about the movie (from official website):

The Happy Film takes a look at the strategies serious psychologists ‘recommend to improve one’s personal well-being and overall happiness. Questions such as ‘Is it possible to train our mind in the same way’ that we train our bodies?’ and ‘Can we change our behavior to make’us happier?’ will be put to the test in this highly visual documentary.

Designer Stefan Sagmeister will attempt a long list of various strategies – ‘from the sublime to the ridiculous – and report back on the results. ‘The documentary’s experiments and explorations are loosely based on Stefan’s book Things I Have Learned in My Life So Far. Though the focus will be on the ability of meditation, cognitive therapy, and pharmaceuticals to significantly alter well-being – the maxims from his book will ‘serve as access points to a larger exploration of happiness, it’s cultural’ significance, our constant pursuit of it, and its uniquely ephemeral nature. Throughout these experiments, our team will work closely with a group’ of health professionals to properly define and assess Stefan’s happiness.

Camp Make Effect

Description wearedesignbureau

In a world full of clicking, typing, and dragging, creatives often finds themselves getting caught up in this crazy digital bubble that we now call the world we live in. Drafting is now “vintage,” and my Prismacolor markers have dried up along with my design patience and process. What happened to the wonderful world of creation…with our hands? This June, I was reminded of the beauty of making when I had the honor of being invited to participate in an art retreat in northern Michigan called Make Effect. It is a unique three-and-a-half-day workshop where professionals from all creative disciplines come together to work collaboratively to create new work and ideas. I was able to meet artists and designers from all over the nation, get my hands messy, sit around a campfire, and get silly. We all faced new creative challenges — I don’t mean Illustrator crashing or browser incompatibility — like how to paint the letter “S” and how to mix the perfect shade of green. The lines didn’t need to be straight, and the ink looked better blotchy as we discovered new ways to face design challenges. Check out this video that sums up the spirit of the camp.

As creator of Make Effect, Michelle Bowers states:

“Many ideas will be born through play and discovery. We will re-examine typography, design, and form making as kinds of drawing, image, photography, sculpture, and installation. We will investigate what it means to investigate, to experiment, to try things whose outcomes are uncertain.”
