Japanese schoolchildren have an eyesight problem. Their eyesight has been steadily worsening. The question became how to increase awareness about the importance of good eyesight? ENJIN Inc, came up with a stunt to solve that problem. They created billboards that looked like eye charts with the letter gradually getting smaller at the end. They developed 35 different messages and placed them in and around schools as well as in shops and outdoors. These illegible signs helped raise awareness, and made a strong impression in school children. Simple and effective idea.
