First Aid Guide

Putting the fun back into First-Aid Basics

Mission Brief:

The St. Margaret Family Health Centers contacted our studio to revisit a first aid guide originally made for school nurses in 1991. Our task was to each develop a physical artifact and eBook that re-contextualizes and rethinks the organizational system and voice of the original. Our individual designs were then used to inform Dr. Ann McGaffey, who is currently working on updating the guide.

I chose first year college students as my audience because they are adapting to a new living environment. This led to the consideration of graphic style, scale, and wording that best suits this user group.
