Describe the brief from the client
This school is a famous art university in Japan.
We were asked to do the Total Art direction for open campus.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
This school is a famous art university in Japan. They had never done such large-scale advertising before in newspapers, on train station billboards, or so on. When we started, the first thing we asked ourselves was "Will creating and publishing advertisements for a university really benefit it, or be good for its image?" A lot of people may not react positively. And so, when we created copy that would communicate the school's philosophy in some way, we did it not only for (prospective) students, but also with parents in mind.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We ended up producing a variety of things. The posters, for example, we made with folds in them so that just by folding parts of them up or down, you could easily imagine being able to make things - consistent with the idea that the school is a place where you learn to make things. Other items included maps, badges, bags, and so on.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
After the campaign, the number of students coming to the school surpassed the previous year.
