My entry for Font Aid 5 : Made for Japan

Organised by S{O}TA The Society of Typographic Aficionados, this is a project uniting the typographic and design communities with a goal of raising funds to expedite relief efforts after the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

My entry titled
'Hope' illustrates a sunrise over the iconic Mt. Fuji, depicting a new day, a new beginning for Japan; the sun being a connotation of the Japanese flag.

If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
~ P.B. Shelley (Ode to the West Wind)

Deep thought well depicted with significance to the elements involved in the design.

Good work Bro .... and the Quote mentioned sends out a positive message.

Great share.

i really liked this... the words 'rising sun' are so strong here...

i just wish the sun could have been in Japan's iconic red... but i guess the contest rules said only black & white?

thanks pratheek. indeed they did, since this is for a typeface / dingbat if you will. otherwise, yes red would be the obvious choice.
