About the Project
We worked with Tan Y Maen to create artwork for their amazing podcast all about Mental Health and Wellbeing in COVID 19 times. The design we created uses the outer shape of a brain to house the title. This is representative of mental health during lock-down and having to contain a lot more within your own mind with less ability to share. The brain stem has been replaced with two bubble icons so that it forms a speech bubble representing talking, sharing and podcasts.
The podcast will be accessed by people across North Wales and North West England and will be a COVID19 support and information podcast including articles, interviews with local support groups, features on support services and Mindfulness and Wellbeing related content. The aim is to help people who have suffered a loss, either by bereavement, job, home, income or emotional loss due to Covid19.
As well as the podcast cover art we worked on some other pieces of design work including the windows illustration above. The design will be used on other Tan Y Maen materials and is a visual representation of people during COVID 19 times. The individual windows show different people using their time during isolation. From an outsiders perspective the design shows how we were all in it together despite feeling alone.
