Call to Action: Japan



It’s a proud moment when you look to your field (communication design) to see who is reacting to a tragedy like the quake and tsunami in Japan, and to see one of your own students displaying their heartfelt support so swiftly and decisively.

One of our senior graphic design students: Maxim Barkhatov felt the urgency to respond to the crisis himself. But, rather than stopping at donating his own funds, he created the above poster to share with us an immediate and effective avenue for action.

In his own words, “I was spurred by a tweet that mentioned that you can simply text REDCROSS to the number and instantly donate $10, and I simply wanted to make something graphic to strengthen the message.”

Thank you Maxim for using your design talents to help those in need. Bravo.
