As part of a nation-wide, mental health awareness campaign, Richmond Foundation required a series of striking visuals that are both aesthetically stimulating as well as informative to its audience.

To answer this brief I presented three alternatives one of which – the campaign featured above – was chosen. By laboriously shaping up typography to create emotive portraits (see work in progress in slideshow above) I was able to illustrate the negative symptoms that characterise mental health problems in the shape of faces.

By doing so I also highlighted the fact that these symptoms can become so overwhelming that they will actually be the main characteristics that make up the affected people’s composition.
