One of the most prevalent difficulties that I have heard about through this covid-19 outbreak in the creative community is that people are out of work. Since many have had to cut back on expenses, designers are suffering. We are going to make it through but in the process we have to keep ourselves busy.
The UN announced a need in late March for designs conveying messages to help stop the spread of covid-19.
They are looking for submissions on the following prompts:
Know the symptoms
Do more, donate
"It is not too late. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Together, we can save lives, protect resources and care for each other." (UN Prompt)
For more information, here is the Talenthouse page where it is being hosted: https://www.talenthouse.com/i/united-nations-global-call-out-to-creatives-help-stop-the-spread-of-covid-19
If you do create something for this project, share it with us through social media, email or the chat. We would love to feature it.
I am inspired by the creative community and how much you have already done to support each other and your communities through this unprecedented time. Thank you for pressing on and not giving up. If there is a way that Typostrate can help, please feel free to reach out. We are looking for opportunities to do whatever we can to keep creatives creating.
