Help Japan: Donations and Creative Response to Crisis

It’s been a week and a half since Japan suffered a devastating earthquake and tsunami; in the wake of this tragic disaster, the world has been rallying behind Japan by providing aid and donations. The creative community, too, has been responding. We’ve seen a surge of inspiring, touching, and emotional creative work posted in response to this tragedy.

We’ve put together a collection of this work so the Behance community can follow and support this creative response to crisis. We’re proud to see that Behance creatives have devoted themselves to creating thoughtful, emotionally-charged work in honor of Japan. Take a look at the latest Japan-inspired projects on the Behance Network.

Please add to our list by posting in the comments with creative work or information about Japan outreach by other creatives that you’ve found. It goes without saying that Japan needs our help.
