British designer Patrick Smith was doing some research into different emotional and mental disorders, and set about the task of conveying them in a graphic, minimalist style. He says,
“My aim was to start a dialogue in the digitally savvy community and hopefully raise awareness by spreading the posters. As a long term goal I wanted to involve a mental health charity.”
The results are a engaging and beautiful take on trying to capture emotions visually, and with just a few geometric shapes.
Also, we applaud Patrick’s willingness to accept feedback, and remove his Gender Identity Disorder from the series, even if its still included in the DSM IV.
