NHK TV Documentary series - Tramway Journeys: It consists of Twenty-four episodes and features ten countries in Europe. It's an 8K super-resolution experience travelling Europian cities/towns by local/historical/modern trams. The target audience is interested in a city "beyond tourism" and in topics such as the local atmosphere, humanity and secret history.
The challenge was to illuminate immersive travel experience and cultural insights without becoming a typical tourist guide. Many parts of the documentary show things "as it happened". It has a hand-crafted spirit.
I researched various travel journals that were somewhat snazzy and liberal, including fashion travel magazines such as ELLE and LV.
I built a design concept in a fashion illustration style with watercolour texture. It represented elegance and warmth. And, I designed each episode with the real watercolour painting. Each episode had a unique style symbolising the atmosphere of the city.
The series continued to air as a signature documentary series over a year, and the production achieved an award.
