Johnson Bank created this nice identity for UK Japan. The team was keen on finding an idea that represented the collaboration between the two countries in a graphic way. Although the two languages are very different in their letterforms, they realised that the Kanji for ‘nihonkoku’ (land of the rising sun) could combine with the letters ‘UK’.

Chris Jordan created this 8′ x 11′ triptych titled “Gyre” based on the famous Japanese painting,”The Great Wave off Kanagawa” by Hokusai. Big deal, you say, I’ve seen hundreds of these…right? But instead of paint, the composition is comprised of 2.4 million pieces of plastic – the estimated number of pounds of plastic that enter the world’s oceans every hour. “Gyre” is the first piece in a series by Jordan to create awareness of the Pacific Gyre, a 1,000-mile-wide concentration of the world’s trash created by ocean currents that grows bigger by the day.
