Slow Train, Slow Life. “Get Back, Tohoku.”

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Crafts for Design / Illustration for Design / 2017

The Tohoku Region, the northeastern area of Japan, was devastated by the earthquake and tsunami disasters in 2011. 
We believed that the best way to support the reconstruction of the area was to attract people to re-visit the area. 
In order to inspire the region with the joy of travel, we decided to spotlight the local railways in area that usually operate in the shadows. 
They are often considered as simply a means of transport. 
In this campaign they are treated as main characters; taking centre stage and successfully infusing a new breath of life into Tohoku travel.
