People have a tendency to consider migraines just a bad headache, but in reality, they are extremely painful and debilitating. Typographic Migraines uses experimental design and type treatments, colors, and Weingart design techniques to visually capture the feeling and intensity of migraines.
The final designs created for this project are extremely bright and may cause eye strain due to the color palette and type treatment. I suggest you slightly dim your screen brightness before viewing and adjust as needed.
Each design was created separately with a slightly different design process and multiple iterations, but with the same intention in mind.
In the end, the designs are able to work individually or as a set, and goes from rigid to abstract design. Below, you can see previous iterations and see design elements that eventually made it to the final designs.
After creating 100s of iterations through the design process, the final four designs were picked intuitively based on the feeling they captured, peer critique, and self-critique.
As mentioned above, the designs below will be very bright and may cause eye strain
or a headache. I recommend adjusting screen brightness prior to viewing.
