Mind Your Mask

proof of concept
Design a wearable that encourages healthier behavior (proper social distancing) during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

These masks use scale, iconography, texture, and typography, to encourage social distancing (6′ has been the recommended distance by the CDC)1.  When a viewer breaks the social distance barrier (within 6′) the ominous details in the textiles (and small text) become legible (high contrast sans-serif text that is smaller than .24″ is generally illegible beyond 6′)2.
