A north-east graphic designer and author who turned to Doric to help reinforce the health messages during the current pandemic has created a new set of images for Phase 1 of lockdown easing.

Best known for her work, a Beginners Guide to Doric, Karen Barrett-Ayres, owner of Bramble Graphics translated several key messages into Doric warning signs.

The messages such as dinna be clarty, wash yir hans and ye can smit aabody wi the virus even if ye dinna loo peely-wally went international, with more than 10,000 shares through social media, many to friends and family overseas.

Her latest creations build on the messages and reinforce points such as If ye canna taste yir fine piece, ye might actualy hae the virus, as well as Bide at Hame as much as you can.

Karen said: “I knew that people from the north-east of Scotland would respond and engage with Doric and wanted it to be funny but also have a serious message and I hope people take heed.”
