Disegno is pleased to share Lockdown Paper: a special newspaper edition of the journal created during the Covid-19 lockdown that is free to all subscribers.

Created in response to the periods of quarantine, slowdown and confinement experienced around the world, Lockdown Paper is a new publication that explores some of the ways in which design has or may intersect with Covid-19.

Lockdown Paper is a free newspaper that will be distributed to all Disegno subscribers. It features extended essays from leading design curators and writers, tackling topics from face masks and urban planning, to Covid-curation and zoonosis.

The paper also includes a series of reflections and illustrations on Covid-19 from studios all around the world.
