Following on from the successful Creatives Against Covid-19 initiative which was set up to raise funds for Women’s Aid and ISPCC Childline, an exhibition of all the work is now taking place in the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.
The initiative received a staggering 1,200 entries from 30 different countries around the world and some of the entries have already been featured on Dublin buses.
The campaign called on the creative industry around the world to design and donate inspiring posters of optimism, resilience and hope. The posters are now available to buy in print, with all funds donated to the two charities. SPCC Childline and Women’s Aid.
The initiative was creative collaboration between Shauna Buckley, Emma Conway, Sarah Doyle, Ryan Kavanagh, Fuchsia MacAree, Rory Simms, The Project Twins and was originated by the design and branding agency RichardsDee.
According to Guinness Storehouse MD Catherine Toolan: “It was fascinating to see the outpouring of creativity inspired by this campaign – not just the variety of talent in the artwork, but also the strong message of unity during what continues to be an trying time. I was also intrigued to see the long-awaited pint of Guinness feature in many guises throughout the artwork, and it is a perfectly fitting venue to not only showcase the work, but also invite people to enjoy a pint poured at the Home of Guinness itself. We look forward to welcoming everyone in to see the exhibition!”
“The Guinness Storehouse has always been a hub of creativity, from storytelling and advertising to hosting and supporting artists, musicians and visual creatives. It’s the perfect venue to showcase this global creativity. While celebrated across the globe, Guinness is intrinsically Dublin– just like Creatives Against Covid-19 which was born in Dublin and raised in the world,” adds Celine Dee of Richards Dee.
