NHK Special “2030: A Turning Point for Our Future”
Opening animation for a TV program on environmental issues

We created the opening title sequence for the NHK special series “2030: A Turning Point for Our Future.” We also designed the title logo. The first episode of the TV series will be aired tomorrow at 9 pm.

The shows reveal to us various environmental concerns we’re currently facing. 2030 is the year considered to be a “turning point” for such global issues, and then touch on how we can avoid a crisis and develop a sustainable future using the decade ahead of us.
The logo and the opening title animation depict the importance of facing humanity’s real issues and choosing our own future.

We hope you’ll find them valuable to watch during the stay-home period.
