We’re absolutley loving all these illos by IRENE SERVILLO and super happy to be sharing this gorgeous new series for The Standford Graduate School of Business. This was a series for Stanford’s Community Response package — in essense a narrative chronological about COVID shutdown; portrait of the school & community in the midst of the pandemic, retelling how the drama unfolded and how the school reacted to the Covid shutdown. Huge thanks to our team at Point 5, this was an amazing series to work on!
