Uterine Leiomyoma

A Threat to Pregnancy

Client: Prof. Shelley Wall and Prof. Dave Mazierski

Content Advisor: Dr. John Wong

Primary Audience: Educated Lay-audience

Media: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, iPad Procreate, Maya

Format: Magazine Spread

This project is a conceptual, editorial spread describing the pathological progression of uterine leiomyoma during pregnancy intended for the educated lay-audience. The challenge involved depicting a clear and engaging visualization of disease progression in the myometrium overtime at the cellular, tissue, and organ levels. To accomplish this, individual stages of disease progression were illustrated in chronological order along a graphic representation of the myometrium. Each stage of disease progression along the myometrium corresponded to illustrations at the tissue and cellular level. Negative space played a crucial role in creating both separation and grouping of different disease stages and in developing a logical reading order that naturally guides the audience. Secondary design variables, including leader lines, were used to link illustrations with text for clarity.
