To protect lives from pandemics


The first confirmed case of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, quickly spread around the world. This virus has become the largest infectious disease in human history, comparable to the Spanish flu, which infected about 500 million people around the world 100 years ago and caused tens of millions of deaths, and it is still spreading.This infection has already claimed more than 180,000 lives worldwide (as of April 23, 2020), and medical institutions are in danger of collapsing due to the ever-increasing number of hospitalizations. And with the blockade of cities and the cessation of economic activity, the biggest post-war recession has also come.

COVID-19 is a horrible infectious disease that can lead to severe illness and even death in some cases, and at the same time there are many asymptomatic patients who are infected and the infection can spread without their knowledge. The fear of this invisible infection has already left several countries in a bind. However, depending on what we do in the future, it is possible to minimize the spread of the virus. The creativity and design wisdom that we possess should be an effective means to do so. In order to reduce the number of people who feel sad because of this confusion, NOSIGNER President Tachikawa has voluntarily started a project.



PANDAID brings together wisdom from around the world through 


On April 5, 2020, when a state of emergency could have been declared in Japan. We launched a collaborative editorial website, PANDAID, to help people survive the pandemic and encourage them to help. Like OLIVE, a wiki site set up by Tachikawa shortly after the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 to gather useful knowledge in the event of a disaster, the co-editable website has attracted more than 100 volunteers with a variety of expertise.

Under the editorial policies of “Gather information where scientific facts have been presented.” “Achieve articles and designs that convey scientific information to the general public in an appealing way.” and “To enrich the content that ordinary people can practice by themselves,” this website gathers a wide range of knowledge and wisdom, from basic knowledge about infectious diseases and how to prevent them to know-how about maintaining physical strength and remote work, how to spend time at home, and grant information. In addition, while creating original infographics and other content as needed, we continue to send out content from PANDAID that is easy for people to understand intuitively.



The logo identity, reminiscent of a road sign, conveys the wish to “STOP” and “RETURN” to the pandemic. It also shows that the unity of the people is essential to achieve this.


PANDAID introduces a face shield developed by NOSIGNER that can be made from an A4 clear file in a few tens of seconds. It is very inexpensive and practical, and the sheet can be downloaded for free. We send our heartfelt thanks and encouragement to those who fight in the medical field around the world.(FACE SHIELD / DOWNLORD PDF

Infectious disease control website for people around the world


Updated daily by volunteers, PANDAID has become one of the most organized sites for new coronavirus-related information in Japan. And in Japan, where a state of emergency has been declared and the situation is becoming more serious, the value of the website is increasing by the day. The posters on the website explaining the importance of social distance to reduce the risk of droplet infection have been shared by more than 10,000 people on social networking services, and have become a movement for infectious disease control that fully demonstrates the power of design.

In order to make PANDAID available to people around the world, we are aiming to make the site available in 8 languages in the future. Until that day when we can see our loved ones again after overcoming one of the greatest trials in human history. We want our website to be the most comprehensible and well-designed infectious disease control website in the world.
