Visualizing (and Celebrating) a Post-Covid World in Images

Words by Jordan Dyck 16 Jul, 2021 0 comments

We’re not going to sugar coat it - it’s been a tough year for the world. But as we look towards a post-pandemic world as more and more countries continue to be vaccinated, there’s a bright light at the end of the tunnel. We’re all ready to celebrate positivity together again, and rejoice in togetherness as we connect with loved ones whose physical embrace we’ve missed.

In today’s article, we’re sharing a few of our favorite celebration visuals to use as we progress out of a Covid-19 world, and how our team is looking ahead as we navigate content production going forward.

Post-Covid Celebration Visuals: Coming Together Again

The following is a list of several themes that we’re excited to begin using as we move towards a future of togetherness, post-Covid. At Jacob Lund, our specialty is lifestyle content featuring people doing the things we love. And boy, have we missed capturing celebratory moments like these ones.


Theme: Family Reunions 

I think we’re all on the same page when we say that reuniting with our family is one of the things we’re looking forward to most. In a truly global world, many of us have family members all around the world who have been separated from each other due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. However, as vaccination rates continue to rise, more and more people are reconnecting with their loved ones. Whether it’s reuniting in airports, arriving home from the road, or as simple as cooking dinner together- family reunion imagery is on the rise.

Theme: Warm Embraces

The poet John Keats once said “touch has a memory” and we couldn’t agree more. Physical distancing restrictions have forced many of us to forgo our traditional friendly greetings- from a warm hug to a respectful handshake. As restrictions lift, visuals of warm embraces amongst friends and family, hand shakes and fist pumps amongst colleagues will begin to trend. We’re all craving a bit of connection, and a warm embrace is truly one of the best gifts we can give each other.

Theme: A Return to Office

For the past year, work might have looked a little different than many of us are used to. While working from home was a requirement for many people around the world, as we move towards this new future- people are returning to work in a whole new way. You may see more cubicles and small office spaces for a while instead of open-plan layouts, and less meetings as we ease back into work life. Here are some images that celebrate a return to normal for work.

Theme: Group Activities Are On 

If there’s one thing that we desperately missed during this pandemic, it was the feeling of togetherness that came from group-based activities. Whether you are an avid gym-lover or attended a weekly pottery class- I think we’re all pretty excited to resume group activities with our friends and colleagues. With this imagery, expect to see happy faces back at their classes, enjoying new moments with friends and spending much-needed time out of the home.

Theme: Sports and Music Events

Whether it’s the good ol’ hockey game or an intimate outdoor concert, visuals celebrating events around the world are beginning to trend. Our Facebook feeds are overflowing with music festival announcements and growing attendance at sport events, so we’re looking forward to seeing more of this imagery come to light once again.

In a post-Covid world, images of events and games might look a bit different however. For a transition period, you may see empty chairs in between guests, or hand sanitizer stations at the ends of rows. While events may look different in visuals, we sure are looking forward to getting together for some fun with friends.

Theme: Resuming Traveling

As travel restrictions begin to lift around the world and vaccination rates continue to rise, resuming traveling is on the top of many of our minds. For wanderlust feet that are itching to go, borders have begun to open and leisure travel is resuming. Imagery of this however, might look a bit different after Covid. As we discussed [Insert Link] in our behind-the-scenes sneak peek at our latest travel shoot in the Cape Town International Airport, there are a lot of new restrictions to follow in airports. From limited luggage carts and temperature screening, to increased hand sanitizing stations- expect to see an update to travel imagery that takes place in airports, bus stations and other transportation locales.

Besides the act of taking a trip, another thing that will look different in this category is what people are doing while they are travelling. For example, we expect to see smaller group trips vs. large tourist groups for the time being as people travel places a little more intimately. Rather than showing crowds at popular destinations, we have a feeling travel imagery in a post-Covid world will celebrate intimate moments in more hidden places.
