The National Alliance on Mental Health is my senior project aimed at raising awareness of mental illness.Mental health and substance use disorders affect around 13% of the world's population and have been exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In the United States, the outbreak has already affected the mental health of 59% of people.

To help illustrate the negative emotions associated with mental health issues, I decided to use only typography in my designs.  

Posters / Motion Avdertising Videos


Using visual imagery to raise awareness about mental health and depression can be an effective way to reach a large audience. I use the image of a brain as a cloud and a sun to represent mental health and positive emotions respectively as a metaphoric way to convey the importance of taking care of our mental well-being.


I used typography to express the different emotions on different layers. They will gradually lay on top of each other and depict a chaotic scene which is how people have depression feel inward.

Drag and overlap the pages to create your own poster.

The posters can work not only as static images but also as motion advertising videos when published. This approach can help engage viewers in a more dynamic way and potentially reach a wider audience.
