The professionals who work with sick kids every day had a lot to say about how best to nurture children through the often scary hospital process. My job, along with other talented artists at Imagineering, was to distill all of the input into visuals that would communicate that process to stakeholders at the company.
I developed a visual vocabulary that communicated our designs in a narrative timeline.
Another challenge we had to address was how best to present the designs to shareholders and the media. So I used a different illustration style to express the soft, inviting environment we were trying to create. The team built an animated presentation that showed the magic of all their technological proposals.
Once the presentation was complete, the team narrowed their focus to come up with concrete designs. I was involved in early mural concepts.
From spot art to last-minute signature images used in the marketing materials.
Disney worked with their internal artists to create a program that debuted at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston in 2019. In 2021, they expanded access to Child Life teams in children's hospitals and places of care in more than 30 countries. I was honored to be part of the early concept team.
