Describe the brief from the client
Korea Tourism Organization wanted a fun and engaging giveaway prize for summer; to attract 25-40 Australians to visit Korea.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Korea can be a confusing place to visit, especially for a first-time Australian tourist. Unless you are a local, the busy cities filled with rows of narrow streets can take some time to navigate. What’s more, most Koreans don’t speak a word of English, which means asking for help can also be a daunting experience.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The idea of creating a t-shirt that was also a navigational device led the design and execution. We kept it minimal and ensured the diagrams were easy to understand, while still having personality. The colour palette simply reflected the national colours of Korea.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The ‘T-NAV’ T-shirt became a hit on the Korea Tourism Organization Facebook page. It gave the brand personality and helped to generate buzz and engagement with Australians interested in visiting Korea. Most importantly, the idea of travelling to Korea became more accessible and fun.
