Dear all,

We have launched Design for Emergency, a set of initiatives to face the COVID-19 emergency through design. As a first step, we are trying to understand the problems, needs, and feelings of people experiencing home confinement by a short anonymous survey.

If you live in the US, UK, Brazil, South Korea, France, Spain, or Italy, we would appreciate if you could support this project by taking the survey and by disseminating it amongst your community. This would help us collect more meaningful data to design solutions addressing current relevant issues.

Our end goal is to rapidly create new solutions to address the specific issues of people facing this emergency: to connect, entertain, and support in a new way individuals and communities.


Thank you for your time!
