How to help (if you can) — NYT special print section

Agency Tala Safié

Client The New York Times



Annual ID



This section came out in the beginning of April 2020, when Covid-19 started to hit New York pretty hard. It was one of those exciting instances where I pitched the idea of the section, and was in charge of its editorial planning, in addition to designing and art directing it. I had to produce it in less than two weeks, from home, and without a printer to proof it, which was pretty terrifying! The section offers readers guidance on how to help others in the time of the virus. Inside, readers will find a pattern for a mask; guidance on helping front-line workers; how to donate money, blood, and masks; and more. The cover, illustrated by Bráulio Amado, doubles as a sign that readers can color, personalize, and post in their windows as a small gesture of gratitude toward essential workers.

My Role was:

I designed, art directed and produced 'call to action' service section at the New York Times that offers ways for people to help others even when they're isolated.
