Wired UK — Rules Britannia: Laws of Lockdown 

Editorial data visualisation for Wired magazine charting the ever-evolving rules of the Covid 19 pandemic.

Government advice wasn't always clear and consistent, but what it lacked in quality, it made up for in quantity. This double page spread shows the key events, milestones, campaign messaging, and laws enforced by the UK government over the course of the Covid 19 pandemic.

To put this narrative into context it is framed by indicators for the three UK lockdowns, rolling-average data for new cases, new hospital admissions, total hospitalisations and deaths. A compact version was reworked as an instagram carousel and shared on WIRED UK channels.
