The Nippon Design Center, headed up by design guru Kenya Hara, has created 311 SCALE, an integrated visual language to communicate the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11th. Visual information at its finest, 311 SCALE attempts to create a neutral representation of what happened on 3.11 by avoiding dramatization and opinions and simply focusing on communication.
