In response to the devastating earthquakes and tsunami in Japan, I have been moved by the response within the design community. Designers of varied disciplines have shared the gift of their craft to raise awareness and much needed funds to help the survivors of this disaster. When something as immense as this happens, it often leaves one feeling a bit helpless, wondering what to do to make a dent in the vast need. Design is a powerful thing. It has the capability to bring together people of all nations, in a common unspoken language. I am inspired by those taking action, regardless of the scale of the gesture, from a limited edition poster to the design of much needed relief shelter. It reminds me that it is the collective action of each one of us as individuals that makes a difference.
