Protective Mechanisms in Human Breast Milk
An editorial illustration for Dr. Lena Serghides to communicate the various protective components in human breast milk, and how they protect newborns from foreign pathogens and toxins. Careful considerations were made in creating a layout that separated the mechanisms while maintaining a clear story.

As an initial study to simplify and focus on the key concepts, a 2D schematic version was created. Designed for PowerPoint slides, these figures focused on clear, clean visuals to convey the different mechanisms.
Sketches & Reiteration
Moving onto the editorial illustration, it was challenging to organize all the different mechanisms onto a two-page spread, while also communicating a clear story. Through several revisions, the layout changed to visually divide each protective mechanism.
