Japan relief poster

While the world watches the devastation occurring in Japan right now the design community is responding. All over Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr graphic artists are creating visual designs intended to encourage giving and help.

The best I’ve found so far is W+K’s poster. Combining the flag of Japan with the cross symbol, the poster is a smart way to raise funds. I just donated and hopefully many will. Art and design can often times solve even broader, human problems. This is an inventive way to tackle the question “how can I help?”

From W+K:

We designed this print to raise relief funds for the devastating earthquake and subsequent massive tsunami that struck Japan March 11, 2011. We are asking a donation of at least $25 for a print, with 100% of the profits going to the relief effort. We will of course accept and pass along a donation of any amount. Our W+K Tokyo office is currently deciding which NPO the funds will be going to.
