Arab News - The Kingdom Vs COVID-19

by Arab News

To celebrate Saudi National Day 2020, Arab News created a souvenir newspaper with special double page cover wrap dedicated to the heroes on the frontline of the COVID-19 fight in the Kingdom.

We collaborated with renowned Canadian artist, Sébastien Thibault, who created an illustration depicting Saudi medical staff wearing masks designed in the shape of Saudi Arabia.

The illustration was animated for an Arab News micro site highlighting the remarkable stories of Saudi Arabia's Healthcare Heroes.
