This project was a group (3 medicine students and 1 design student - me) collaboration with the NHS, specifically the Ninewells hospital in Dundee. The brief was to make a booklet to solve the issue of children, particularly aged 2-12, with broken bones not knowing how to care for their casts and not being informed of the process of recovery from getting their cast on to getting their cast removed.

We decided the best way to get the information of the process across to children would to be in a comic. This would make the children absorb the information through something visually exciting that they want to read, rather than a dull booklet that they avoid like the plague.

We used the otherside of the booklet to clearly get across the vital information the nurses told us the children should know. This was done through a simple do's and dont's page, as well as the back page using some interesting icons to highlight what staff kids should look out for if they have questions. It also included a fun maze to get readers more involved and mentally stimulated by the booklet.

The final result was a tri-fold booklet that showcased all the required information while being fun and interesting to the young audience. It was a great experience working with an organisation like the NHS, where there were numerous revisions to ensure it provided the best possible experience for a variety of patients while ensureing the medical information was concise and accurate.
