​Design in the Time of COVID-19: Designing for the Vulnerable

Coronavirus has wreaked havoc across the globe to say the least, but it’s also inspired hope and community in ways we haven’t seen in a long time–or possibly ever. Graphic designers worldwide are no exception, putting their visual communication skills to good use to help those in our most vulnerable communities.

 

At its core, design is the practice of creating beautiful solutions for various issues, and as this piece from DesignWeek puts it, “Designers are best placed to look at problem-solving.” Our tried-and-true skills can be put to practical use in these unprecedented times. May we all be inspired to help those in need, and keep our sense of community in this time of isolation.
