It’s been a busy year. We have been planning a mail-out for a while now, but the Summer update, turned into some Autumn reflection, which has now become an end of year thank you for all your support in 2016. A few highlights:
Thanks to LIXIL, we now know more about toilets than we ever thought possible.
Eat has been working with the company on a series of projects focusing on their work in tackling the global sanitation crisis. This kicked off with support for the TICAD-VI conference (Tokyo International Conference on African Development), which took place in Nairobi, Kenya in August this year, and most recently has seen us preparing for World Toilet Day (November 19th, if you didn’t know), in collaboration with Airside Nippon. It involved a lot or cardboard and some animated poo. Intrigued? Find out more here.
For the last year, we’ve been supporting Peace Boat on a remarkable project – to build the world’s most sustainable cruise ship. It’s an enormous undertaking and we are very excited to be involved. You can learn about the project in detail on the newly updated Ecoship website, and find out more about Eat’s involvement here.
Eat has been retained by the The Goethe-Institut Tokyo, along with long-time collaborators, design duo So+Ba, to update the organisation’s visual identity to better represent the Germany of today and engage with a younger generation of people in Japan. We’ll be working on a variety of projects over the coming year. See some our initial work here.
And finally, it looks like 2017 is going to be even busier – so much so, that we are hiring. We’re specifically looking for Japan based graphic designers, bilingual project managers and admin support. Contact us and make our Christmas!
Have a great holiday and we look forward to seeing you all in 2017.
The Eat team
