Supporting designers has never been more important

Supporting designers has never been more important

How much did designers help you during lockdown? Probably more than you think (see below). In our previous blog we talked about how designers can both create change and support us through it – never more so than throughout lockdown. But, like the wider arts sector, many design and creative professionals are feeling the impact of Covid-19. We have a long history of supporting and developing designers and there has never been a more important time for you to show your support too…

Designers have probably helped you more than you know

Those instructional safety posters and signage when you or your loved-ones went out? Someone designed and printed them. The infographic that your friend shared on social media which gave you additional information about Covid-19? Someone designed that. The news website where you could check the statistics in your area? Someone designed that too. That meme or cartoon that kept your spirits up? Yep, that’ll be a designer.

Celebrating designers

Although the Design Week Awards 2020 did not have an actual ceremony this year due to lockdown, the organisers have still done all that they can to maximise exposure for all the designers involved. You can show your support by checking them out here! There are some amazing projects being showcased which are bound to leave you feeling inspired when it comes to refreshing your brand or your next marketing campaign.

Supporting designers

We have a proud history of supporting up-and-coming designers by taking on local apprentices and helping them get their foot in the door. Many have stayed with us for a long time and gone on to achieve big things which makes us very happy! Although times are difficult for everyone, and this is set to continue for some time, we believe now it is more important than ever to come together as an industry and show support to each other, whilst nurturing new talent. We will continue to do whatever we can to achieve this.


Whether you are inspired by the Design Week Awards to update your branding or you would like experienced advice on your post-lockdown messaging, call us on 0208 590 0922 or email us at info@marcomedia.co.uk We’re here for you throughout lockdown and beyond…
