The Earth Quaked, Designers Designed
The tragedy of this past weekend’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan has touched us all. Almost immediately email traffic increased, not just inquiring about the safety of family and friends, but offering imagery in support of the victims. While few images are more vividly moving than the color video and stills captured throughout the Web, the posters and illustrations I received in my email queue have an emotional resonance.
Here are a few of this weekend’s output from (from top to bottom): Yossi Lemel (Israel), Erik Brandt (USA), Max Erdenberger (USA), the Cormack McCarthyesque image by Jeremy Traum (USA) and Andrea Rauch (Italy). Each designed to show solidarity and/or raise aid for earthquake relief.
