1000 cranes for japan

I’ve been helping out my friend Alfred at Anomaly with his brilliant project, 1000 Cranes For Japan.

It takes the Japanese tradition of folding origami cranes to be granted a wish, and turns it into a way of showing support and understanding for those poor buggers who have been well fucked up by the tsunami/earthquake.

So in exchange for a donation, you can download one of the patterns done by top illustrators, such as:


Jeff Metal

And Stuart Patience

Fold ’em up and off you go (I chose the first one).

The campaign has had loads of coverage, including Creativity Online’s pick of the day.

So, brilliant stuff from everyone involved (Unit 9 did the site).

UPDATE: you can consider every donation one in the eye for the planet’s biggest cunt.
