We created a logo and applications for the Hansen’s Disease Sanatoria World Heritage Promotion Council (NPO) who is aiming for the Hansen’s Disease Sanatoria to be included on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. Throughout the world, Hansen’s Disease patients had been forced to live in sanatoriums and completely secluded from the society. Japan had been no exception.
The logo and applications we designed presents such history surrounding the Hansen’s Disease, and what is more, clearly tells what we should do and can do in our daily lives in order to build a society that is free from prejudice and discrimination.
As a part of future strategies, the Council is promoting people to share the same designed applications. Therefore, we prepared a smartphone standby screen or a sticker that can be downloaded for free from the website.
