I had never imagined that as an artist and a graphic designer I would be hired to brand an Interdisciplinary academic research on pain and suffering. Accepting this meaningful challenge, I knew that I should not use the trivial visuals already conceptually bonded with those topics. My design explores suffering in different layers: philosophical, social, medical and scientific.
From my personal point of view that suffering and pain comes in many faces and forms, philosophical and scientific, I chose the humanization of suffering and pain as my basis.
I studied the analogies between symbiotic in nature and symbiotic in human relations and from this research I created characters that visually represent the symbiotic relations between suffer and the sufferer and between pain and the one in pain.
This design is an experiment and the viewer is the subject.
