Design Bridge London creates pandemic poster campaign
- May 20, 2020
A global pandemic is quite a surreal thing, don’t you think? Everything is in turmoil, and yet so still and silent. No real sense of control, punctuated by rapidly changing news updates, stats and graphs, which can seem confusing (and unreliable) at best.
But there are some good things, too. Joe Wicks every morning at 9am like the PE teacher you wished you’d had. Claps and cheers heard up and down the streets. Rainbows in windows. Little signals that hope is not lost if we don’t want it to be.
These outpourings of goodwill and community spirit got us thinking; what if we could create a campaign that put people at the heart of fighting this new global enemy?
Our posters represent the human touch at a time of human need, with messages that will continue to ring true as we face the weeks to come.
If you’d like a black & white outline set that your kids (or you) can print out, colour in and display, click here to download – we’d love to see your creations!
This project was a collaboration between Design Bridge London’s Holly Aurelius, Will Bennett and Chloé Templeman (with a little help from some friends).
