- Audi and Volkswagen have revised their brand logos to promote social distancing.
- Social distancing is being put in place in many different countries because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- It comprises a set of actions meant to slow the spread of infectious disease, such as keeping six feet of space between yourself and other people.
Many automakers have disrupted production because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and now Audi and Volkswagen are changing their logos—at least temporarily. To promote social distancing, a measure being used throughout the world to combat the spread of the virus, VW and Audi have put a bit of extra distance in their own logos.
The updated Audi logo separates the four rings from each other, while the Volkswagen badge—which was recently redesigned—puts some extra space between the “V” and the “W.” The automakers have so far posted animations and logo images on various global consumer and media websites, as well as on social media channels.
Governments and health organizations worldwide have said that six feet of physical separation from other people will help prevent transmission of coronavirus. Other social distancing measures put in place in many countries include school closures, cancellations of large gatherings, and travel restrictions.
