THE SCIENCE OF MOTION SICKNESS
STUDENT PROJECT, 2017
I have a deep love for infographics, and this project proved to be no exception. Starting with the topic of seasickness, I researched how, when, and where motion sickness happens and what we can do about it. My target audience in this project was young mechanical and aerospace engineers, and I user tested many iterations with them and other STEM major college students, to find the perfect balance between large-scale illustrations and anatomical models so there wouldn’t be a gross factor to what can be a gross topic.
I wanted to make sure that my project would speak to both my target audience of people with specialized knowledge in how things that make people motion sick work and everyday people. I user tested the readability of all of my blurbs and worked with nursing students to make sure that all of my anatomical models were correct but not too gross that they would scare people away.
