Slovenia-based artist redesigns iconic logos to promote social distancing

March 25th, 2020

Clearly, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us nothing but fear and anxiety as the number of people getting sick exceeds the maximum limit of patients the hospital or facility can take care of. That’s why social distancing is strictly imposed in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus in communities.

Social distancing means staying six feet away from other people to lessen the chance of transmitting the virus (in case you are an asymptomatic carrier). This prohibits people from attending crowded gatherings such as concerts, cruises, festivals, and sports events.

With a lot of people (from across the world) joining the campaign about the importance of social distancing, Slovenia-based graphic designer Jure Tovrljan showed his support by redesigning the brand logos of famous companies.

Originally posted on Tovrljan’s Behance page, the logos (which he named “coronavirus logos”) have already gained more than 87,000 views and 1,500 likes, as of this writing. Meanwhile,¬†Facebook page Asians Never Die reshared a series of side-by-side photos, showing the original logos and Tovrljan’s versions.
