Related program: Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami Rebuilding
Rise for Japan is a group of New York-based designers and creatives who came together to build a fundraising campaign to help those affected by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. In partnership with Architecture for Humanity and Milton Glaser, designer of the “I ♥ NY” logo, Rise For Japan produced a limited edition “Rise for Japan” poster to support rebuilding efforts in Japan. Each poster is unique and an instant collection item, printed on a letterpress in New York, on fine handmade Japanese paper and limited to a hand numbered edition of 500. The campaign just launched sales this weekend and has the goal of raising $50,000 for Architecture for Humanity's program in Tohoku.
Watch their video to see how each poster is produced! You can support Architecture For Humanity by getting one of the Milton Glaser's limited edition Rise For Japan posters here.
