ABSTRACT

This study investigated and analyzed design cases of Japan where there are usually a lot of measures against earthquakes. In particular, foreigners who are socially underprivileged, face some difficulties such as language transmission when an earthquake occurs. In order to solve these problems, we surveyed and evaluated the printed materials provided by Japan and after the evaluation, we presented a design suitable for the current situation in Korea. In the first phase of the study, the necessary information was first printed before and after the actual earthquake. In the second stage, we assessed the actual use of printed materials to foreigners. In the final stage, we re-designed a new design according to the current situation in Korea. When providing information to foreigners, first of all, it should be stated that there are actions to be taken immediately after the earthquake. Second, it is necessary to provide information for preparing in case of an earthquake. Third, earthquake illustrations and photos can be intuitively used as methods of expressing information. Korea can no longer be called an earthquake safe zone. It is necessary to thoroughly prepare for disaster prevention through daily preparation, training and research.
