I had the chance to design a science exhibit. I chose Fibromyalgia, a chronic widespread disease as my topic. This topic is personal to me because my mother has it and it has truly changed the way my family and I live. Not a ton of people know what Fibromyalgia is so, I broke down the disease and explained the diagnostic process, how it affects your body, and ways to help treat it. Using color contrast, illustrations and hierarchy to help.
As a second piece, I designed a booklet to provide information to people who are first diagnosed. This book breaks down first thoughts, help decide what doctors to see, exercise tips and more. A person first being diagnosed already has their mind racing with questions so I aimed to make this book easy to understand. I provided quotes directly from my mom to show them that they are not alone.
