Episode 001 • 40 min
COVID-19 is straining our frontline healthcare workers and systems. As designers often do, they see a problem and they jump in with creativity, and they start making things.
We are seeing individual designers, collectives, and 3D-printing factories all springing into action to help. We discuss the global design relief response with George White, Chief Innovation Officer at Cantina, and interview Gustavo Fontana, Founder and Creative Director at Fresco Design who is leading an effort called UShield.us to mass-produce face shields and distribute them to hospitals around the country. Plus our Weekly Dose of Good Design.
