There are many people who do not know the details of good and bad germs, which may lead to unhealthy lifestyle choices, and there is also a lack of user-friendly germ educational tools available.
I created MICROVERSE as a solution. MICROVERSE is a project about creating fun educational tools to help people live healthy lives with germs. The deliverables in this project include an app, website, guidebooks, and a poster series. I did all the user research, design, illustration, and writing for this project.
My research included reading college textbooks, germ guidebooks, children’s books about germs, and the Centers for Disease Control site. I also worked with a pediatrician, who made sure all the information in MICROVERSE was accurate. I also did user research, through focus groups and talking to people in my audience, which included parents, teachers, a nanny, and children.
I was really inspired by mid-century inspiration for this project.
