The Art / Artist:
The Design: "Come Together"
Bandit asked artists to submit designs inspired by the concept of Community, and how it's changed throughout the events of 2020. From hundreds of submissions, "Come Together" was selected as a finalist and voted by their Instagram community as the contest winner.
In Adam's words, his design submission was "inspired by the idea of everyone for once seeing eye-to-eye, and growing into who we need to be as human beings." Despite our divisions, "Come Together" is a reminder that we do all share commonalities as humans. We all have similar basic human motivations, and if we leave the space to listen to each other we might find more common ground than we expect.
