Location: Tokyo, Japan

Ishimura+Neichi is a Tokyo-based architectural practice. The studio has been working on a wide range of residential, interior, exhibition, product and furniture designs. The visual identity was produced around a website. The website expresses both ease of access to information and memorable typography on a single page. Noi Grotesk by Studio Feixen was used for the English text, and Tazugane Info by Monotype was used for the Japanese text. Each typeface was selected and produced with attention to fine detail representing its philosophy.

JAPAN 2021 was a Japanese film campaign by the British Film Institute carried out from 2020 to 2021 across the UK. The project focused on over 100 years of Japanese film through cinema seasons, online exhibitions, theatrical releases and education events. We used archetypes from different film genres to create an overarching traditional and modern design style. The illustration style allowed us to create a really strong and iconic promotional and advertising campaign.
