Design students have their say on Cancer in WA

Graphic Design

'Have Your Say On Cancer In WA' is public consultation project initiated by the WA Department of Health, Public Health and Clinical Services. The project aims at communicating substantial data and statistics about various kinds of cancer in WA and in comparison with overseas data set. A public website is being set up to engage WA public to get their reactions towards this complex set of data. ECU Design students were involved in conceptualising the complex data into clear information graphics that can communicate effectively to the public. The project was part of the unit DES3207 Design Practices: Design Production, in which students communicated and worked with the Department of Health to generate appropriate graphics for the consultation. The final outcomes are currently being implemented on the Your Say On Cancer in WA website.
