The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has changed everyday life for the time being. The government has enforced lockdown measures, and all but key workers have to work from home. A lot of design businesses have been working remotely for a couple of weeks now. And while a lot of work can be done from home, the design industry also relies on face-to-face “sparks” and live events.
To fill this absence, institutions and agencies have set up a range of platforms to support designers who suddenly find themselves working from home – offering inspiration, opportunities to fine tune their skills and new communities at a time of isolation.
