Project: Peace Virus postcards for the book "Mail Me" from the Italian Fabrica.

What if we could spread peace as a virus sent by mail?

Peace Virus is a set of illustrations I created for the Mail Me book project, inspired by the Anthrax virus letters surge that happened after 9/11. I designed several virus structures composed by the letters of the word 'peace'. Then, I clustered the viruses such as in a Petri dish (I know, it's for bacteria and fungi), forming the shape of the world map.

Mail me is a multidisciplinary project that resulted from the research for the design of a mailbox developed by Fabrica for the Spanish company Bd Ediciones de Diseño. A group reflection to which many famous creators like Alan Fletcher, Reed Kram, Ed Fella, Enlightenment, Kazuiko Hachiya, Matali Crasset, Charlie White, Uwe Loesch, Oscar Mariné, el Bulli and Ora-ïto,  have added their personal experiences, general impressions, sublime visions, funny solutions and mental interpretations. The results are collected in a unique book published by Electa and a conceptual exhibition that will travel by post to various cities around the world.

Each page of the book is a detachable postcard that is ready to be sent by mail.
