Honda. Great Journey.

38) Honda Great Journey 2

Concept / Creative Direction

Human beings are instinctively mobile. We can trace our roots to the continent of Africa, where, millions of years ago, our ancestors began what archaeologist Brian M. Fagan calls "The Great Journey." It was a migration north into Europe, across Asia, and on to North and South America. A journey of over 50,000 kilometers. No other creature on Earth has traveled so far, or adapted itself to the terrain so widely. The goal of our Great Journey project is to reimagine this journey, and propose how it could be made today using the latest technologies for human mobility. It was conceived as a journey of adventure that would also allow us to develop prototype vehicles for comfortable travel virtually anywhere on the planet. Vehicles that offer a superb view of the passing scenery, and that can drive autonomously day and night, providing not only transport, but also shelter, a place to sleep, even a hot bath and space for a family pet. With their expanded mobility and functionality, these vehicles are designed to enable us to follow our natural instincts and curiosity, exploring and rediscovering the ancient romance of travel in complete and total comfort.
移動は人間の本能だ。約400万年前、アフリカ大陸で人類が誕生し、そこからヨーロッパ、アジア、南北アメリカへと拡散、大移動していった。その距離はおよそ5万キロ。これほど広く地球上を移動した動物は、他にない。私たちは「グレート・ジャーニー」(考古学者ブライアン・M・フェイガンが名付ける)と呼ばれる、この人類大移動の歴史をたどってみようと考える。それも最も新しく、最も快適なモビリティで。このプロジェクトは、あらゆる場所への不自由ない移動を叶える、プロトタイプ開発でもある。そのモビリティは眠っていても自動運転で進む。風呂もペットも我慢しない。お気に入りの景色の中で、寝泊まりできる。モビリティの拡張が、移動したいという人間の本能(好奇心)を自由にしてくれるのだ。私たちは、前人未踏という人類のロマンを手に入れるだろう。何の無理をすることもなく。

POLA: New Branding

Pola_Dots

Creative Direction

The brief was to rejuvenate Pola's visual identity upon their 85th anniversary, including a total redesign of all of their branding and packaging. We designed a visual identity system based on dots: Pola Dots. Each dot represents a drop of Pola’s beauty products; the pattern shows the way that dot expands drop by drop infinitely across time and space. The pattern communicates Pola’s commitment as a cosmetic company to delivering their products carefully crafted, and without compromise to each customer.
POLAのリブランディングを総合的にお手伝いさせていただきました。新企業理念「Science. Art. Love.」、行動規範、マニフェストの策定から、ブランディングビデオの制作、新VIシステム「Pola Dots」のデザインまで。ショッピングバッグや封筒、名刺、そして店舗のデザインも一新しました。

Pola Recruit Forum

40) Pola Recruit Forum

Creative Direction

This POLA recruitment ad was the first ever TVC which mentioned Gender Equality situation in Japan, and got a huge response from the audience.
"この国は、女性にとって発展途上国だ。"という印象的なフレーズで始まる、POLAのリクルートTVCをつくりました。POLAさんはもともと女性役員や女性管理職も多く、機会均等において非常に先進的な企業なのですが、今回のTVCでは販売を担当するビューティーディレクター(旧称:ポーラレディ)を募集しています。この仕事は女性が中心、なおかつ将来的に事業主として独立できる可能性もあるという夢に満ちた仕事。新しい働き方を探す、起業家マインドを持った女性に届くといいな、と思って企画しました。ジェンダーイクオリティの視点から企画されたこのTVCは、週刊誌で特集が組まれるなど、大きな反響を呼びました。

EPOS: 100 Design Cards

5) EPOS

Product Design / Creative Direction

In order to increase the usage frequency of "EPOS CARD", a Japanese medium-sized credit card brand, we presented a bold idea - change the product design. Based on the fact that there is no psychological connection between a user and a credit card, we added another feature to the membership process; choosing a favourite card out of 100 designs. With this, we have successfully created a personal psychological connection between the user and the service doubled the size of their credit card business.
中堅クレジットカードブランド「EPOS CARD」の利用頻度を向上させるため、プロダクトデザインを変更するという大胆なアイデアを提案。クレジットカードにはユーザーとの心理的な絆が存在しないことに注目し、入会プロセスに“100枚のデザインカードの中から一枚を選び出してもらう”という行為を追加。これにより、サービスに対する心理的なコミットメントを創出することに成功し、カードビジネスを約2倍に成長させた。

Sony: make.believe Campaign (MAKE TV)

6) MakeTV

Strategy / Creative DIrection

Make TV was created as a part of the Sony “make.believe” brand campaign. It was the first of its kind “live interactive TV show” that allowed the audience to participate in creating a music video for Karmin on TV. When people downloaded the app “Dot Switch” to their smartphone, tablet, or PC, they were able to collectively turn on the machines inside the TV show. The TV footage was then turned into a music video, with a thank you list of all the participants’ names. As a result, more than 890,000 people watched it live, and over 7 million pushes were recorded during the show.
Make TVは"世界初のライブ・インタラクティブ・ミュージックビデオ" を制作するための視聴者参加型の生放送番組(TBS)。視聴者は事前に「DOT SWITCH」というアプリをスマートフォンやタブレットにダウンロードすることで、リアルタイムにTV番組に参加することができた。画面の指示にしたがって手元のアプリをプッシュすると、その合計数によって13個の仕掛けが次々と発動していく。出来上がったビデオのエンドロールには、参加した視聴者の名前を表示。出演者は、KARMIN。Sony “make.believe” / 「ものがたりをつくろう」キャンペーンの一環として実施された。

ToyToyota: Backseat Driver

7) Backseat_Driver

Creative Direction

Backseat Driver is the first digital toy from ToyToyota. It's an iPhone app, which allows kids to enjoy driving from the backseat of the car. By using the iPhone's GPS function, the players are able to drive a virtual car, which moves along with the real car that they are driving. They can collect actual shops and landmarks, which are generated using the Foursquare API. The players can also accrue points, customize their car, and share their drive with friends via Twitter. The "Backseat Driver" offers the passenger a new way to enjoy driving.
未来のドライバーである子供たちに運転の楽しさを知ってもらうために「ToyToyota」という“おもちゃ”のブランドを発表。その第一弾として「Backseat Driver」をリリース。「BackseatDriver」は、クルマの後部座席に座る子供のためのドライブゲーム。乗っているクルマとGPSで同期している「パパカー」を追いかける「マイカー」を左右に操作することで、運転席に座るお父さん/お母さんと一緒に運転する喜びを体験することができる。FoursquareのAPIを使用することで、ゲームの中には実際のお店やランドマークが「アイテム」として登場、それを集めることでポイントを稼ぎ、マイカーを「カスタマイズ」することができる。自分のドライブの記録は自動的に記録され、SNSを通じてシェアすることができる。

au: WALL

8) WALL

Strategy / Creative Direction

The platform was created for "Brand Graden", a fashion e-commerce website by au, a Japanese mobile phone carrier. This is a platform to transform buyers into sellers. By registering on WALL, the users become the owner of the boutiques. They can display their choices of fashion and interior items in their virtual wall, and can share their own shops via SNS, like Facebook with their friends. A small percentage of the revenue will be passed on to the owner. This is a new type of affiliate system.
auのファッションECサイト・ブランドガーデンのために作成されたプラットフォーム。それは、これまでの買い手を売り手に変えるプラットフォーム。WALLに登録すると、オンライン上に自分のブティックを持つことができる。与えられた壁に好みの洋服やインテリアを並べて、Facebookなどでシェアするだけ。そのお店からの売上げの数%がショップオーナーに還元される、新しいタイプのアフィリエイトシステム。

Honda Green Machine

9) Honda_Green_Machine

Creative Direction

This was an integrated brand campaign for Honda's new hybrid car lineup, which was introduced to counter the national leading brand PRIUS, which goes 10 years ahead of the market. The unique technology made "competitive price" and "full-lineup strategy" possible and we named the lineup as "Honda Green Machine". Toyota established its image as the "inventor" of the hybrid, therefore our strategy was to position Honda as the "democrat" and successfully executed the debut campaign for the first Honda Green Machine, Insight. The launch had a substantial impact on the industry and Toyota even announced to reduce the price of PRIUS just after the campaign.
10年先行する国民的ブランド・プリウスに対抗するべく登場した、Hondaのハイブリッドカー・シリーズの統合キャンペーン。独自技術により「低価格」と「フルラインアップ戦略」を可能にしたHondaのハイブリッドカー・シリーズを、「Honda Green Machine」として集合的に訴求していくことを提案。ハイブリッドの「発明者」として認知されているToyotaに対して、ハイブリッドを「民主化」する存在としてHondaをポジショニングし、Honda Green Machine 1号・インサイトのローンチキャンペーンを成功させた。このキャンペーンの後にToyotaはプリウスの価格改定(値下げ)を発表するなど、産業全体の方向に大きな影響を与えた。

Creative Direction

The opening campaign for Yurakucho Marui department store. The concept was "Fashion Thearpy" and the teaser campaign was executed with a "capsule" icon. We installed "capsule" vending machines on the street, opening the "Candy Restaurant", and projected gigantic animation on an exterior wall of the store. The campaign turned Yurakucho area into a big toy box and attracted a lot of media coverage. After the opening, we've worked on a section of the store space and also the shopping bag design.

Licca World Tour

15) Licca_World_Tour

Product Design / Creative Direction

The 40th anniversary campaign for "Licca", the Japanese Barbie doll. In the world of "Licca", women have long been considered as "good wives and wise mothers", which is a norm that people valued 40 years ago. In order for the brand to fit into a new generation, we created a story named, "Licca World Tour". The story was told via Licca's personal blog updated in real time as she visited new cites. A new product line-up was released coinciding with her journey, such as a limited edition Licca doll wearing fashion items based on the location. The campaign worked well, along with developing products and the store fronts (we supervised the product design). The entire journey of 11 cites in 9 countries was then edited into a photo journal which was published from Shogakukan at the end of the campaign.
リカちゃんの40周年キャンペーン。リカちゃん世界におけるジェンダー観が、40年前の“良妻賢母”的な価値観に基づいていることを発見し、そこからの脱却を描く「リカちゃんの世界旅行」の物語を提案。旅の物語はリアルタイムにブログを通じて“本人”から提供され、リカちゃんが新しい都市に到着するとその都市のファッションに身を包んだ限定モデルが発売されるなど、商品そのものや売り場とも連動したキャンペーンとして実施した(プロダクトデザインも監修)。9カ国11都市をめぐる旅の物語は、キャンペーン後に小学館から写真集として発売された。
