During the surreal weeks we are living, our awesome IED students tell us about their quarantine through their future job, Graphic Design.
Right now, many of them are stuck in other countries, far from Milan and from their daily life. Some are still in the city, but with the same effects imposed by the situation that we are all experiencing.
The online courses allow us to see each other, to talk. Though, they do not leave time for frivolous questions that usually occupy the initial and final minutes of face-to-face lessons or for small moments of dialogue and exchange in the corridors and courtyards - which all represent an important part of their education and training as future professional designers.

They have been asked by Bob Liuzzo to send some "postcards" from their quarantine. Images can talk about them, about what they are feeling, thinking, perceiving but also of society and the world around them in this unique moment in the recent history of mankind.
Irony, romanticism, a sense of belonging are just some of the topic that dominate the visuals they sent to me. Not simple images but strong personal statements expressed with the simplicity that should be typical of today's visual communication. Big and small problems of this home lockdown that we must respect but which, we are understanding, do not belong to our way of understanding life.

Come on girls and boys, this situation will make you become better designers,
will make you understand better than many books the real role that images can have on the world and how they can tell the true and false, the beautiful and the ugly, the objective and the subjective.
