Describe the brief from the client
We designed an exhibition space showcasing the D&AD Award, the highest honour of the design industry.

Describe the challenges and key objectives

Targets were Japanese professionals involved in design. Our aim was to create a sharp design that was strong yet simple.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The motif came from Pachinko (Japanese pinball). Only ideas that go beyond uncontrollable variables, such as luck or innate talent, can win. This embodies the miracle of ‘Design Fever’. 4 posters types were created; themes included outer space and more anime. The entrance featured a remix of pachinko parlour sounds and sparkling posters.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The number of visitors doubled compared to last year. Posters were sold out. Many people decided to drop in after seeing the entrance. The event was also popular among foreign tourists, which helped attract new visitors.
