Brief Explanation

A topical challenge: Borders' bankruptcy, largely attributed to e-books. While e-books have apparently not affected Malaysia yet, there is a need to make conventional books more appealing in view of that trend.

Describe the brief from the client:

To promote and maintain Kinokuniya Bookstore's reputation as the place to go for inspiring reading material.

Description of how you arrived at the final design:

The final design of the witty bookshelves came about with this realization: now folks write in abbreviations, and reading means surfing internet headlines or Facebook - it's high time to remind them that books fill your mind with flashes of inspiration, spark bright ideas, stimulate great conversation, and is conducive to deep thought wherever you may be.

Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market:

The posters received favourable comments ranging from 'Those shelves are so cool!' to 'Does Kinokuniya sell them?', and even 'It makes books so sexy' and 'Could I have the posters? I want my contractor to make bookshelves like that.'
