A group of creatives from the Very Polite Agency in Vancouver has embarked on a worldwide mission with a simple goal – to unite global artists and designers to support UNICEF in the fight against Covid-19.
They have collaborated with a community of designers and illustrators to create a "colouring" poster series on life in quarantine that is as educational as it is engaging. They can be bought individually or sold as part of activity books that include colouring pages, crossword puzzles, paint by numbers, and word searches to help keep us all busy and creative.
"These are activities for all ages and something we can all do at home while social distancing," says Dylan Rekert from Very Polite Agency. "It's incredible how even despite these extraordinary circumstances, artists from around the globe are eager to be involved in the cause and willing to invest time in putting this all together."
One hundred per cent of the poster series proceeds will go directly to UNICEF's Coronavirus Relief Fund to help provide urgently needed medical supplies to children and families in countries hit hardest by the virus.
"We released Volume One of the activity book, which featured artists from Spain, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Today, we are releasing Volume Two, which will include work by artists also from Japan, Columbia, the USA, and more. We are committed to doing all we can to help the most important cause of our time," adds Rekert.
The posters can be ordered online and shipped directly to you, or, alternatively, they can be downloaded as an activity book and printed at home. For more information, visit weareverypolite.com.
