Healthy Aging

I was contacted by Peggy from Tufts University in Boston requesting a homepage image that captures the work of the university-based research centre. Tufts are one of the largest research centers in the world studying healthy aging and its relationship to nutrition and physical activity. The brief was to produce a design that included the various elements involved in the research and that sat well with their established website style.

Deciphering Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease

I was contacted by Jennifer at Harvard Magazine requesting an illustration for a piece that focused on lyme disease and how it affects the body. Lyme is one of the fastest-growing infectious diseases in the United States. In this case the client already had a concept in mind, the target on a torso, so it was a really a case of how best to realise it.
