Covid-19 Flag

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything” — George Bernard Shaw

COVID-19, a monumental global event that has reshaped society, served as the inspiration for this project commissioned by the Dublin City Council. The objective was to capture the essence of these transformative changes and reinforce the ongoing need for vigilance.

Tasked with creating a flag to be displayed by the Liffey River, my design revolves around the concept of social circles and bubbles, symbolizing the importance of adhering to social distancing measures. The flag serves as a poignant reminder to maintain physical distance and practice proper hand hygiene to curb the spread of the virus. Additionally, the inclusion of a small orange circle prompts individuals to prioritize their mental well-being during these challenging times. While the color palette drew inspiration from the  COVID-19 signage in Ireland, the infusion of warmer tones such as yellow and orange aims to create a more approchable visual.
