A social media post by Jimbo Hart of Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit which used the hashtag #MaskItOrCasket helped inspire the design. When Jimbo was asked if he minded a poster referencing “Mask It Or Casket,” he requested the proceeds would be donated to Covid-19 research. The poster uses a flat illustration style, created as vector art in Adobe Illustrator. Using bright colors against a black background, the poster is designed to be eye-catching and the meaning to be obvious. The flowers can be viewed as funereal, but are also an attractive addition so the poster is suitable for display.
The poster is currently available at https://etsy.me/2ZOvFJE. All profits from the sale will go to Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO (World Health Organization.) These donations support WHO’s work, including with partners, to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate research and development of a vaccine and treatments for all who need them.
