Font Aid V: Made For Japan

'Font Aid V: Made For Japan' is a collaborative design community project which aims to help raise funds for victims of the earthquake and tsunami that struck on 11th March 2011.

My first glyph design is a representation of the scale 9 Earthquake that devastated Japan, fracturing the country and leaving it to be pieced back together through aid and support.

While the second glyph hints at the Tsunami and the dramatic effect it had inland, while also communicating hope as the Eastern Sun rises once again over the waves and horizon.

Combined together these two glyph designs form "9.0" (the magnitude of the event), portraying both the severity and aftermath of the situation, yet also expressing optimism and hope for Japan in the future.

Patterns of Power ident #1

A brief ident animation for the "Patterns of Power" logo I designed. The logo and graphic symbols felt like they would translate well into motion graphics, so I thought I'd have a bit of an experiment in Flash and then finished it off by composing 'a little something' in GarageBand. Enjoy!
