Pre-Pandemic Nostalgia

Companies are striving to recreate pre-COVID-19 activities and ambiances

Trend - Many brands are attempting to recreate experiences from pre-COVID-19 when physical distancing wasn't imposed as a strict safety measure by governments. These ambiance-replicating initiatives target outdoor public spaces, dining-in experiences, and more.

Insight - As time progresses, consumers are feeling more restless as non-essential businesses remain closed and physical distancing guidelines are still in effect due to COVID-19. Many individuals are missing their pre-pandemic routines and as a result, nostalgia over certain everyday activities that are currently forbidden is setting in.. Pertaining mostly to experiences that were widely available then, consumers seek to replicate these activities at home.
Workshop Question - How could your brand appeal to pre-pandemic nostalgia?
