A special edition for Japan

Project description

As an extension to the global Artek website, we provided Artek Japan with an adapted and extended digital home. Redesigned to accomodate for the Kozuka typeface and re-structured to serve different editorial requirements, the site casts an editorial eye on a finnish brand much beloved by a discerning audience.

Technologically, Artek Japan is administered through the same system as artek.fi. This allows the japanese team to implement content and features where required – while remaining unhindered in building market-specific narratives.
