Women and girls have all sorts of questions about their health. Topics range from what to do if you contract a STI, to what do if you fear you may be in an abusive relationship. For over two decades they have turned to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH) for answers to these questions.
I had the great opportunity to work with the fine folks at Hager Sharp to strategize and help improve the accessibility of information on the OWH website. Our goal was to come up with a modular system of converting hundreds of text documents into animated videos, so that important information can reach anyone, anywhere regardless of a person's ability to read or understand complex medical documents. Below is the toolkit I put together for the pitch.
The idea was to create a database of icons representing a wide range of health topics and terms. Each icon would exist as an animated asset and could be dropped into an edit as needed.
