What I did: Graphic Design / Illustration
Client: University of Calgary
cards.ucalgary.ca is a eLearning website, that was developed by University of Calgary, for medicine students preparing to their MCC exam. This website has been used in over 16 medicine schools in North America, including Yale university, New York University, and the University of Calgary…etc. Each card has different symptoms, race, age, gender, and weight. Students have to answer the question based on those features.
My role was to produce all the illustrations of the patients. The image of patient will change randomly. I produced females and males in 6 different races and 4 ages. For each race and age, I had designed at least 3-6 kinds of eyes, noses, mouths, hairs, body shapes, clothes, and faces. Each part is separate so developers can put them into a database and generate different characters. My illustrations can be generated into over 10 millions characters.
The client wanted a clear cartoonish style. Because the illustrations are for medicinal purposes, it had to be realistic and focus on details. For example, the skin colour of 5 different races has to be reasonable.
