There’s a free-to-use COVID-19 Job Board that lets creatives find work during uncertain times

Created to help employers and creatives find each other amidst uncertain times, ‘The One Club COVID-19 Jobs Board’ is a free-for-all job-posting resource that aims at connecting people seeing to work globally with agencies and design studios.

The service was initiated by The One Club For Creativity, and is open to the entire industry, spanning individuals of all levels of experience and from all around the world. In an effort to keep the design industry from facing the blowback of an economic crisis, The One Club COVID-19 Jobs Board is completely free to use and requires no membership or signing up either. Creative individuals can either scan the job board for vacancies (there are internships available too), and recruiters can submit their job postings either for immediate openings as well for job opportunities expected in the future once the pandemic is over.

We encourage creatives to refer to this board for job/collaborative opportunities as well as recruiters to use this resource to post their openings too. A big part about what makes our creative community great is the amount of empathy we have and our ability to work towards a goal for the betterment of society. This job board is a result of that empathy and collaborative spirit.

The Lexon Oblio wirelessly charges and sanitizes your phone at the same time

I’m pretty sure you don’t want to read about how a smartphone screen is often a cesspool of germs and how it has more bacteria than a toilet seat. That sort of information is useless if there isn’t a solution to remedy the problem, in my opinion. So let’s just get to the solution, which sits pretty neatly on your bedside table in the form of Lexon’s Oblio wireless charger. Rather than being modeled after a mat you can put your phone on, the Oblio is a vessel you put your phone into. Put your phone right into the Oblio’s slot and it immediately begins sanitizing as well as wirelessly charging your device. A 10W wireless charger at the back juices your phone in just 20 minutes, giving the Oblio enough time to use a front-facing UV-C lamp to sterilize your phone’s screen.

The Oblio’s unique form factor not only makes it look like a chic little planter around your house, but also cleverly hides your phone from view, so you’re less likely to constantly fiddle with it during the charging/sanitation cycle. It’s a clever bit of design, tech, and a behavioral-change solution all wrapped in one!
