Today I’m bringing you a print advertisement campaign from Japan.
The Fukushima disaster certainly had a real impact on Japan. Not just on the people but also on the pets and animals in the area. The objective from Grey Tokyo is to raise awareness of the Fukushima voluntary group SORA. This voluntary group hopes to save many of the animals that were left behind, or abandoned, when the nuclear power plant disaster struck in 2011.
People are voluntarily trying to save the animals in the Fukushima areas affected by radiation, but they are struggling to fully maintain their activities due to a lack of manpower and donations. So by releasing this print ad they hope to raise awareness of their efforts.
All the animals in the prints are real Fukushima animals.

Reviewing The Print Advert:
The messaging of the advert perfectly works in delivering the message that people have a choice to save animals, with the right choice being yes. It also highlights the group who is doing the saving and provides a link to their website. 5/5
The design of the poster is clean and clearly portrays its messaging purposes. However I would say that the images of the animals themselves could have been better taken, with better levelling balances. 4/5
