This campaign was directed by a Tokyo-based NPO called WELgee, which is run by students at Keio University.

 

I was assigned to create social media friendly illustrations that would be used to counter misconceptions surrounding refugees in Japan, from being burdensome to society, to not existing at all.

 

On WELgee's Instagram you can view the finished products, with accompanying text.
