Zygosity vs Chorionicity
AUDIENCE 

McMaster midwifery students for an e-textbook

 

TOOL

Illustrator CS6

 

GOAL

Simply depict the concept of zygosity vs chorionicity. Make a line illustration that is clear, concise and simple. 

 

THOUGHT PROCESS​

For this illustration, the relationship between the chorion and amnion is key. I chose to colour code these structures to make them clearly distinct. Using strategies such as minimizing and recycling assets, I was able to quickly deliver this illustration. 

It was important to have a consistent style for the book. 

To do so, I studied past illustrations and made sure to closely follow the established visual style sheet.
