A celebration of the new, the interesting, and the downright confounding.
A tribute to rule-breakers everywhere.

I wondered if you guys could please help us out with a project we’ve worked day and night on the last week. We’re trying to raise money for Japan but more importantly to make people stop for a second and send their thoughts and wishes to the affected. This is done completely pro bono and we’re reaching out to everyone we know to drive PR and awareness of this initiative

Please forward to everyone in your office and every contact you might have that could make this reach further.
As the aftermath of the tsunami continues to cause serious disruption throughout northern Japan, we need to bring aid and support to the area as quickly as possible. Although financial donations will be greatly appreciated, it is also important that the people of Japan to know that we are contributing in a way that transcends monetary worth.

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish. Today, the Japanese still respect this custom and use it to help loved ones recover from illness or injury.

One Thousand Cranes for Japan takes this tradition and expands it across the globe in a unified display of goodwill. Anomaly has together with Unit 9 created a project where in exchange for a donation you can print a specially designed pattern to fold into an origami crane in support of Japan.
Many famous artists have donated patterns for the initiative. We launch with designs from animators Zeitguised, photographer Todd Selby, artist Paul Slater, creative collective Actop, illustrators Brian Grimwood, Hennie HaworthLaura QuickMatt Lyon and directors Tokyo Plastic.

We will add designs as they come in day by day: we are expecting submissions from Diane von FurstenbergBrian Grimwood, Andy GilmoreJames JoyceMr BingoJody Barton and many more…

A donation to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund allows you to download and print off one of these illustrations, complete with instructions on how to make your own origami crane.

We are hoping many thousands of people will make a crane and in doing so focus their wishes of hope and recovery for those in the grip of this tragedy.

Please contact us if you require imagery for publication.

Kind Regards,

Anomaly and friends
