Featured in the AIGA Members Behance Portfolio Gallery in June, 2012. Chosen for promoting design thinking.
When challenged to create an infographic about something unique to myself, the thing that stood out the most were the strange illnesses I had growing up as a child. I contracted uncommon diseases such as West Nile Virus and Lyme Disease and my doctor has claimed me to be a medical anomaly. However, I wanted my infographic to be light-hearted instead of all about sickness because I see these as obstacles I was able to overcome in my life. Getting past these difficulties is something that I wouldn't ever want to change. To achieve a more positive tone, I included anecdotes of what I remember from being in the hospital and fun things I got to do like ride in an ambulance and eat lots of ice cream.
I constructed the infographic in the form of an accordian book so that it folded up to the size of a small 5x7 inch medical file.
