Eating Disorder

My Eating Disorder is made in collaboration with Dr Janet Treasure and the Eating Disorder Service team at the Maudsley Hospital London.

Twelve different design styles were created to test which would be most motivating to support those recovering from Anorexia Nervosa. It was produced as part of a wider programme of medical research to help people in recovery from eating disorders. Interviews with a several people in recovery reflect on their experience and pass on advice to those still in the throes of this life threatening illness. The purpose of this research was to gauge the reaction of recovering anorexia patients to various animation styles and to determine which design approach resonated most strongly would be most effective at communicating the content.
