Really quiet. And it feels sudden, even though we’ve been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic here in Seattle for a while now. Schools are closed for the next 6 weeks, and I saw the notices last night that all of our other favorite places are closing today too, at least for the immediate future. Governor Inslee ain’t fooling around! In reality, not much has changed yet in my own daily life—I always work from my home office, get most of what I need delivered, and don’t go out very often. The only difference is that now I hear my husband’s muffled conference calls in the room above me as he works from home, and have a 6-year-old reading me books and planning out his leprechaun trap on my office floor. In some ways, it’s a nice change of pace, and I’m trying to focus on the positives (especially since we’re only on day 1).
I’m feeling a collective quiet now, as the pandemic is starting to affect daily life in other parts of the country too. Lots of things are up in the air at the moment…events of all types and sizes are getting cancelled and postponed, businesses are trying to figure out how to operate under difficult circumstances, and the unexpected is quickly becoming the new norm (temporarily). None of us really knows what’s coming next, but I can tell you that Weiher Creative isn’t going anywhere. As a designer who frequently works on event graphics, I’m used to being flexible and shifting gears on the fly. And because Weiher Creative is a small firm, we can move fast as messaging needs to change. So as your design needs evolve, we’re here to help.
It’s good to stay connected, now more than ever…even if we have to stay apart for a while. We’re all in this together.
How are things where you are?
