Digital marketing agency Hashtag Interactive celebrates Philippines’ National Heroes’ Day lauding the country’s national and modern-day heroes. Featuring an original illustration series, the social post aims to showcase the heroic efforts of COVID-19 frontliners at par with the magnanimous acts exemplified by Dr. José Rizal, Andrés Bonifacio, Emilio Aguinaldo, Apolinario Mabini, Marcelo H. Del Pilar, Sultan Dipatuan Kudarat, Juan Luna, Melchora Aquino, and Gabriela Silang.

That said, the annually-revived question of “If Rizal were alive today, what would he be doing?” was explored and expanded in a way that would honor the heroes who helped shape the nation and the heroes who are braving the frontlines today.
With the re-imagined personas of prominent historical figures, the illustrations are to highlight character parallelisms between past and present heroes.
The covers were designed with visual elements native to classic Filipino comics, paying tribute to great Filipino comic artists. To check them out, simply head over to their Facebook Page.
