Designers United for   Japan

Motivate people to donate to various organizations. Design a poster that inspires the nation and helps them resurrect themselves from the aftermath of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.

More than anything else they need our support to boost their psyche. Who better than us, designers to take this initiative and inspire the battered nation.
