DAC – Designers Against Coronavirus is a digital archive created and curated by CaroselloLab which presents the current circumstances through the eyes of designers, illustrators, and creatives from all around the world.
In contradiction to the fear and distrust spreading by the Covid-19, DAC aims to inspire communication, sharing and giving visibility to works that unite people through beauty and creativity.
DAC’s archive features the best Covid19-related artworks, including credits and links to the creators and it will soon become a book.
CaroselloLab is a brand design and communication studio from Milan. They created this platform in the hope of making a little part in the emergency.
DAC’s goal is to raise funds to fight the virus outbreak, supporting the Italian Red Cross and helping to support this battle that thousands of people are fighting for all of us.

"WE CAN DO IT!"
Inspiring by the US propaganda poster (We Can Do It!) - created in the 1943 by J. Howard Miller for the Westinghouse Electric to raise worker mood - I've replaced the iconic woman with a nurse to express a big thanks to all the medical staff all over the world and in particular in my country where my mother works in the front line.
They are our everyday heroes.
WE CAN DO IT
The original poster and all the medical staff of Radiotherapy (Brindisi's Hospital) where my mother works.
This Easter 2020 will be in the history and we will never forget.
The bird of peace, often used against war and hate, today brings a mask to the world, as a symbol of safety, giving a message of protection and hope for everyone.
"In these difficult times we have been amazed by the participation of people in the creative industries. Many created illustrations, graphics and moving images to inform, express solidarity and spread hope. We decided that this work didn't have to get lost."
