Inviting 55 artists to combat COVID-19.

With Cards Against Corona, we encouraged creatives to interpret and visualize the pandemic in whatever way they see fit — covering anything from toilet paper hoarding, home quarantine, robot-ambulances, hand wash reminders, social distancing tools and angry virus creatures.

The result is a diverse and visually stunning set of playing cards, co-created by 55 creatives. Every card features a unique artwork, inspired by the pandemic.

Each card features a pandemic themed artwork, designed by 55 artists from 32 different countries. All profits were donated to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO.

The pandemic seen from the unique perspectives of 55 artists.

“The Quarantine Queen shows two different sides of dealing with the pandemic: to be productive, wearing make up and elegant clothes or relaxing, sipping wine in a comfy sweater. Both are good ways to deal with quarantine in my opinion!”

“At first I wanted to draw a transformer cop car with police officers in hazmat suits. I quickly realized that an ambulance would be a much better fit in terms of color and all the medics putting in a great effort under this pandemic. The ace is a strong card and I wanted to picture that accurately.”

“The idea behind my illustration was to channel who we are as humans and what we want to come out of this pandemic. What really matters to us. Relationships, working together and supporting each other to get through. I like the idea of using a really cheery and vibrant style because I think we all need a little happiness at this current time — and a reminder of how wonderful the world that we live in is.”
