During such a difficult and shocking period that the entire world had to face, Dadsit managed to find a way to keep creativity alive and feed the emerging designer community from all around the world.

More than 200 participants submitted their work to win a special collaboration with Dadsit, made to measure on every different kind of artist and need.

A selection of 15 young creatives was featured and interviewed for the Dadsit Instagram page, sharing thoughts, ideas and new ways of creating during the difficult lockdown period. We asked ourselves many questions about the future and met virtually with different personalities all over the world, form Mexico to Sweden.

Only 2 lucky talents won the challenge and talked with Dadsit for an Instagram live where the community could learn more about their process and work.

Andrea Cammarosano, ex. Antwerp student and now full time artist and
designer, and Christopher De La Cruz, a real new yorker now doing a knitwear undergraduate at Central Saint Martins.
That’s how Dadsit’s community kept growing and expanding even with just a small initiative that became special and global and took everyone closer even if only virtually.
