Describe the challenges and key objectives
We had to convey the product benefit while establishing a clear, recognisable visual identity.

Describe the brief from the client
The client asked us to build awareness for their highlighter Pilot Light.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Words are the foundation of Pilot’s identity. Whether you want to write, correct, erase or highlight them. So we thought, let’s take words and design them into scenes from real life. And use typography to bring them alive. But as in real life, the most important part of a situation is not always the most obvious. With the Pilot highlighter you can get to the point easily.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
We spread these ‘encoded’ images through print and outdoor media. And gave people the opportunity to discover the stories behind the typographic designs that at first seemed to be just a jumble of words.
