Social distancing is fast becoming the new norm for many of us as the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold, with the UK becoming the latest country to introduce a government enforced lockdown.
Some brands have also been jumping on the social distancing bandwagon, including McDonald’s Brazil, whose recent campaign saw it split its Golden Arches logo in two – but this was met with a mixed reaction on social media.
LA based agency Activista is putting a pop culture spin on the latest guidance in its new campaign, 6 Feet Album Covers, a website dedicated to famous album covers that employ a bit of graphic design trickery to emphasise the importance of social distancing to help stem the spread of the virus.
The reworked covers include a new version of The Beatles’ Abbey Road, where John, Ringo, Paul and George are shown keeping a more conservative distance from each other, and a particularly inspired redesign of N.W.A.’s 1988 album Straight Outta Compton, where all of the band members apart from Eazy-E are safely tucked away in separate rooms leaning out of the windows.
