Touch Wood

Touch Wood

Japanese ad agency Drill Inc., created this mesmerising mobile telephone advert to promote NTT Docomo’s wooden encased Touch Wood SH-08C handset. Featuring a giant wooden marimba, hand-built in the woods of Kyushu, Japan, as the ball rolls down the structure, Bach’s Cantana 147 is played out.

Drill creative director Morihiro Harano conceived the instrument which was built by Kenjiro Matsuo of Invisible Designs Lab.

Adrian Tomine

Adrian Tomine

In response to the devastating Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, Drawn & Quarterly and Adrian Tomine have teamed up to raise funds for relief and recovery in Japan. They are offering a set of exclusive prints featuring two of Tomine’s most elegant and evocative images, signed and numbered by the artist. Strictly limited to an edition of 50, the illustrations were originally created as cover illustrations for the DVD release of the Yasujiro Ozu films The Only Son and There Was a Father, and have been reproduced with the permission of the Criterion Collection and Shochiku Co. Ltd.

In addition to the two prints, all orders will include a small original sketch by Adrian Tomine, personalized to the name of the purchaser.

100% of proceeds will be donated to the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund.
