OIST Publications

The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) commissioned Sandbox to design and produce a pair of authoritative and thoughtful introductions to the graduate university. With sweeping photography and eighteen feature-length stories, the OIST materials communicate the university’s mission, campus, student life, research programs, the island prefecture of Okinawa, and the faculty members.

Intended as top-tier communication tools, Sandbox collaborated with OIST’s internal communications team to create the over-arching structure and narrative of the pieces, tailored to best engage their intended audience of government officials, philanthropists, and industry leaders. To maximize the brochure and faculty booklet’s scope of audience, both pieces were produced in English and Japanese.
