This illustration was featured on clear files and stickers for children distributed at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

Because these goods are given to children who visit Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, a symbol of nuclear tragedy and peace, we felt it was important to use meaningful motifs, so we focused on the olive tree and dove, symbols of peace.

Fictitious French Cuisine

Fictitious French Cu...

The design was based on the course menu in the mind of Eiji Takahashi, a famous French chef.

In order to realize Mr. Takahashi's vision, we interviewed him, developed a design concept, and tried to express his unique concept visually, so that the message would be conveyed to the viewer.

We also try to convey the content of the dish to the viewer through pictures alone.

We were also conscious of accurately and visually expressing the contents of the dish in a beautiful way.
