Fellow Canadian James White, better known by his design alias Signalnoise, made this elegant poster amid all of the turmoil going on from the aftermath of the Tsunami this week. Its so simple, and has an elemental feel to it with the cracks and texture effects. There are two things that stand out to me when looking at this, one, the symbolism of the cracks from the effects of the 8.9 earthquake in Japan, and two, the ink blotted near the bottom that associates with the bloodshed from the unfortunate casualty toll. Its a very serious poster, but also spectacular in its foward thinking-ness.
All proceeds go to Japan disaster relief.
