The nova coronavirus or Covid-19 epidemic challenges the visual design skills of layout artists and editors, as they create artwork to promote the network "specials."

ABC
The virus has been set up like wallpaper or background. Depicting the virus with red signals alarm and urgency, but panic has been averted by presenting the virus as if it were out of focus and only indirectly illuminated.

CNN
Similar to the first one, from ABC.

The words are highlighted by the adjacency of small, sidebar-style images. The virus, and the caduceus that is the traditional symbol for Physician or Medicine. Sophisticated and "on point."

As basic as a Dixie Cup of vanilla ice cream or a brown paper grocery bag. Inspired by the adage that "Better is the enemy of Good Enough."

The virus. What else do you need?

I particularly like this one. Richard Engel looks like he's about to step onto the surface of Mars. It brings the human aspects of the epidemic immediately to the foreground.


I don't like the epidemic, but this was a self-directed Rorschach exercise.

It is odd to consider that someone has been charged with the task of making such a presentation sufficiently enticing, without being gauche.

An even tougher job will be creating a tasteful ad in about a month and a half when they start to have big sales on a particular brand of beer.

Month and a half and we will all be dead. No need for sales, the beer will be sitting on the shelves free for the taking.

It's a liberals wet dream!! (Not that I am opposed to a free beer or 2)

Yippee we're all gonna die.... again.
