The client wanted to create more general awareness of Diabetes, and crush associated stereotypes. They wanted to present the information in a way that explained the complications of Diabetes in a compelling, introductory way, without providing too much complex information.
The purpose of this infographic is to educate people in a medical setting, such as a doctor's office, on the basics of Diabetes. It explains in basic terms and shapes what Diabetes actually does to the body, some likely symptoms, and how to manage insulin. Since this disease affects almost ten percent of the American population, I aimed to create awareness with this poster by making terms relatable and easy to understand but also well-informed. The hand holding the insulin test strip serves to create a human connection that evokes a feeling of empathy in the viewer.
Anxiety is the most common mental health problem in America, and directly affects about one fourth of the population at some point in their lives. My goal was to create a bright, uplifting poster series that would assure youths that there is hope in overcoming and coping with this mental obstacle. In addition I aimed to create awareness for both people dealing with anxiety symptoms as well as people without it, who might know people with it.
This three-part infographic serves to educate young adults and teens on anxiety disorders. I wanted to especially draw attention to the fact there is a difference between healthy anxiety and anxiety disorders. This is emphasized in the first poster as a segue into the coping and conquering methods outlined in the second and third posters. I used bright colors and vector graphics to serve as a light of hope for those struggling.
