SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, CA — A local graphic artist has designed hoodies with the slogan "Six Feet Saves" to encourage people to maintain social distancing during the busy summer months.
Ali Robinson of Santa Cruz said she designed the sweatshirts after seeing numerous visitors continue to visit local beaches. Robinson said in a statement that she sees the bright blue hoodies as being a means for people to stand up for the health of their community.
At first glance, it appears a wave is behind the "Six Feet Saves" text. But take a closer look and you'll see it's two curves: a flattened curve, which resembles how data visualizations would look if the spread of the coronavirus slowed, and a heightened curve, which resembles how data visualizations would look if it continued to spread at an undesirable pace.
Others say "Six Feet Saves" "my Grandma," "my Community" and "my Mom."
The sweatshirts are printed locally and come in one color — symbolic of the united stand Robinson hopes the community will take, she said on her website.
“The only behavior we can control is our own," Robinson said. “Wearing a hoodie shows your support for flattening the curve and reminds others around you that this virus is still a very real threat, even during the fun of summer.”
