The MeDesign - Human Health Book

It’s a blend of anatomy and design, with simplified forms and clean lines: The MeDesign – Human Health book.

The book has been developed as a result of a 10-week project in the Graduate Graphic Design Applications course in the MFA Graphic Design program at the School of Design of Rochester Institute of Technology.

13 first-year graduate students had to examine and explain different aspects of human health. Everyone of them was given the challenge of designing a book section, starting with research, followed by writing the content of the pages and designing non-verbal visual explanations.

Even though all students had their own section of the book to complete, they also had to team-up – on the book’s structure and layout, designing the cover, developing a system of icons, preparing files for printing and guiding the project through printing production – to connect all their parts creating a coherent book. 

The Human Health book, a project conceived and implemented by Professor Bruce Ian Meader, is an exemplar of design excellence targeted at information design and the demanding challenge of designing forms that make the invisible visible and understandable. This book is a major element in the RIT accomplishments related to the MeDesign Project.

- R. Roger Remington, Vignelli Distinguished Professor of Design
