What can graphic design do against the pervasive crisis we are all living? Instantanea - instantaneous pieces of advice against the spread of Covid19 is my small contribution to this issue, it is a social visual campaign that takes a subtle and original approach to playfulness and minimalism, with the aim of facilitating the spread of practical messages for the unprecedented emergency we are living in. The shapes build a ‘common design language’ able to express and convey some of the important messages from both a medical and a civic perspectives. As said by Alan Moore (2016) ‘The act of creating something of beauty is a way of bringing good into the world’. Beautiful design not only attracts but most importantly it helps us survive. This is one of the principles for the social visual campaign I propose here. The graphics proposed take inspiration from a series of phenomena and sub-phenomena covering the topics of also gender equality, loneliness and civic engagement. I believe in fact that design is first and foremost a tool for democratisation of information and of social gender equality. The design tries to be as minimalistic as much as possible, with the aim of being seriously playful and at the same time it tries to give clear directions on how people should behave towards themselves and towards the others.
