Infographics for Medicine

Image Type: multiple

Usage: These five designs were part of a 20-set infographic poster series for medical students. They were all printed individually as 18 x 24 inch posters.

Process: I worked directly with a medical doctor (Dr. Arun Mathews) to research and edit all of the infographic content. The illustrations themselves were initially sketched out in pencil in a sketchbook. The final draft was illustrated using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

Materials: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, graphite on paper (for the infographic on embryonic heart development only).

Formats: The illustrations were published as a series of 18 x 24 inch posters. The work was made for that size in Photoshop and Illustrator as digital files.

Brief Requirements: Create a series of elaborate infographics explaining important topics in medicine. These infographics should be intended for a medical student audience, and detailed enough to be used as a study guide in addition to being an aesthetically pleasing, decorative poster.

Key Brief Ideas: In this project I really wanted to combine science and art into a beautiful and informative piece. I decided to work in a series of different styles to embrace the different requirements of each topic in medicine. Some subjects (such as anatomy), were best served by a detailed hand-drawn style, while other subjects (such as virus taxonomy) called for a futuristic style and somber color-scheme.
