Re:ORIZURU FANO" is a new lineup for "Re:ORIZURU," an ethical, eco-friendly product line from EARTH Hiroshima, using paper recycled from paper cranes.
All three fans, "Re:ORIZURU FANO -smile-," "Re:ORIZURU FANO -passion-," and "Re:ORIZURU FANO -more smile-" were drawn by users who attend "Pong Pong," a continuous employment support (type B) workshop.
Fonts and patterns were created based on their characters and expressions, and designed by the laboratory of the Faculty of Art, Hiroshima City University, led by art director Professor Masahiro Nohjima.
As you spread the fan, a smile will spread too. The original, playful illustration will make your heart feel more positive. The design somehow conveys a warm mysterious, and gentle feeling.
