20 Ways Swine Flu Has Influenced the World

From Decorated Masks to H1N1 Fashion

— July 27, 2009 — Lifestyle
Some scary swine flu statistics were recently released that predict that 40 percent of Americans could suffer from H1N1 this year and next. The death toll could skyrocket to several hundred thousand unless preventative measures are taken as soon as possible.

Take a look through this cluster to see how swine flu has influenced our world thus far.

Implications - Global crises and events capture the attention of millions of people across all ethnic or cultural barriers, and in doing so they present an opportunity for creative designers and companies. Products, services and advertisements that reference these pivotal moments in history are far more likely to be taken note of. As such, companies hoping to get the attention of consumers should always look for ways to incorporate these iconic moments into their designs and their marketing.
