BRIEF: Create basic marketing communications and a news-feed website for tracking the spread of infectious disease globally

With the worldwide outbreak of swine flu and the ongoing issues in Africa with Malaria there was a need for up-to the minute information to be made available to track the spread of desease globally.

I was tasked to create a website design to supply the latest information, as well as offering essential information for locals and travellers to help protect themselves and prevent these epidemics from spreading. The interface for the website used tickers for the latest info, bold impact fonts, and lots of imagery, which was considered vital in highlighting symptoms. These designs were also used for flyers and stationary.
