Karoshi  過労死

Posters | 841 x 1189 mm
This is one poster from the set of 4 posters and a book for my Final major project in university. The project aimed at raising awareness and giving information about the intense working culture in Japan, a culture where instances of employee suicide or heart failure is a common occurrence because of long working hours. The literal translation of ‘Karoshi’ is ‘Death by overwork’. The publication features photographs and daily stories of salary men, bringing focus to the importance of work life balance towards reducing Karoshi cases in the future.
Please have a look at the publication here : Karoshi- Death by Overwork
