Artists including Peter Saville and Fergadelic have contributed to the Stick Together sticker collection that is being sold to support the NHS, plus today's other design-related coronavirus news.

The collection of 10 stickers, called Stick Together, was organised by curator Francesca Gavin and founder of Sticker Archive website Alex Powis to raise funds for the NHS.

Each of the stickers was created by an artist to show support for the NHS, with graphic designer Adam Tickle creating a sticker that says Stick Together for the NHS to represent the series.

"Stickers can act as a badge – a powerful symbol of support for a cause that you believe in," said Powis.

"We wanted to take this and put it to good use for the NHS as they fight Covid-19 for all of us, raising vital money and showing our appreciation at the same time."

Several of the designs incorporate NHS blue, including British graphic designer Peter Saville's contribution, which is a reworking of his seminal cover for Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures album.

Digital radio station NTS and fashion magazine i-D have both reworked their logos in the colour.

Graphic artist Fergus Purcell, who is known as Fergadelic and designed the iconic logo for Palace Skateboards, designed a web with the words "tattoo everything" for the collection.

The other contributors to Stick Together are Aries Arise, Cali Thornhill DeWitt, Fiona Banner, Lakwena and Linder Sterling.

The packs of stickers are available on the Sticker Archive website, with all profits being donated to NHS Charities Together.

"Covid-19 is bringing the NHS to its knees, and we wanted to do something," said Francesca Gavin. "The stickers are an accessible and affordable way to show support. We chose these artists and brands because they are pioneers of independent creative expression – something that feels incredibly vital at this moment."
