Upon collaboration with Kohshin Trading Company in Sendai Japan, we designed the disaster kit "THE SECOND AID." This disaster kit reflects "OLIVE," a wiki-style web page launched just 40 hours after the Great East Japan Earthquake. It shared tips and knowledge useful in the event of a disaster. "THE SECOND AID" is designed with a white background and red font—an image of a first-aid kit that would save lives during an emergency.
The "O" in OLIVE represents the emblem of Japan's national flag, using this with the word "live," to reflect our wish, "Live on, Japan." We collected various ideas on how to efficiently and effectively utilize items in affected areas where there may be a lack of resources. Upon voluntary contribution, the website is translated into English, Chinese, and Korean, still expanding as a database that utilizes collective wisdom. There is now an "OLIVE BOOK," a paperback book consisting of information collected on the OLIVE website. All useful information during disaster situations is described with illustrations, making it easy to understand. An abridged version of "OLIVE BOOK" is included in an A4 size notebook format in "THE SECOND AID."
