Get happy with me.
Science is so exciting, but science textbooks have a reputation for being fairly boring, at least visually. This project aimed to change that. The final deliverables include creating a visually-dynamic science textbook, three promotional bookmarks, and designing a website for the book's publisher.
I chose neurology, with a focus on neurochemistry—the science of how chemicals in our brains influence the way neurons, synapses, and neural networks work, including how they affect our moods. My goal was to make the textbook accessible to the layman. I achieved this by putting a conversational, self-help spin on the book.
