These are challenging times; there is no denying it. If a while ago, we were told that 2020 would start with the world suffering a pandemic and global isolation, many would not believe it.
Social isolation is a reality worldwide, and people are creating incredible things inspired by this invisible enemy. Designer Dylan Coonrad, during a routine run, has noticed a void in quarantine-related cautionary signs in his neighborhood in Brooklyn. This has inspired him to create a series of reimagined street signs before and after the virus.
"I found myself paying attention to the road signs along my route. I've seen them countless times, but with each footstep, I really focused on what they were telling me: cross the street, do not enter, no parking, speed bump These were the rules of the road just weeks ago. Now they're less important. Today, society needs constant reminders to socially distance, stay home, protect our elders, and much more. It crossed my mind that these universally recognizable street signs could be totems for the messages we need in these unprecedented times ", - the artist said on his website about the series.
