Thursday, March 26, 2020


Major brands like McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Audi and Volkswagen have redesigned their logos to spread awareness on “social distancing” according to CNN. Social distancing means remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible. “Distancing” has proven to be an effective method across the globe in the fight to contain the coronavirus (Covid-19) across the globe.



Many luxury brands and designers have taken action to help out during the global health crisis by donating their facilities and staff to manufacture critical hospital supplies needed such as masks, gowns, and hand sanitizer.
