This book celebrates the 2020 project contributed to by 60 creative practitioners documenting their time through the pandemic. This project was conceived by Lisa Cahill to keep our spirits up through the first national lockdown.

The book was designed by Stephen Goddard with text by Lisa Cahill, Stephen Goddard and Melinda Young.

Designers and creative thinkers were invited by Australian Design Centre to capture their thoughts in sketches, diagrams, drawings, text or collage on COVID-19 and isolation.

To read someone’s journal is a privilege. Sometimes done in secret, without permission, or long after a person has gone, this is a rare insight into the very recent thoughts of designers, makers, artists, architects as they lived alongside all of us through the tumultuous year that was 2020.

Design Isolate: The Pandemic Through a Creative Lens shows us the generosity of spirit in these creative people. It shows us how creatively confident we are in this country and how much our creative community gives so that each of us can lead richer, more fulfilled lives.
