Investigate a cultural story > analyse images

How do they illustrate the topic?

How does the image correspond to the text?

Is there something missing to clarify the content narrative?

To shed light on issues surrounding period poverty and the stigma of menstruation, 140 designers collaborated to create various full stops, incorporating imagery such as uteruses and underwear. Their vibrant and playful approach resonates well with their student audience, conveying a bold message. Each design, predominantly using red, cleverly connects to the theme, offering relevance and lightheartedness. Notably, the data example (image 3) employs bold typography, utilizing one of the ‘periods’ to emphasize the straightforward yet impactful message: “End a sentence, start a revolution.” This font is striking; further enhancement could involve incorporating more full-stop designs to visually represent the statistic “1 in 5,” perhaps by featuring four images of the same design and one showcasing a different one. This approach would reinforce the data and add visual interest and coherence to the presentation. What are your thoughts on this approach?

Instead, Anvari is determined to shed positive light on menstruation. “Phasal Font Design THREE” does that by thoughtfully depicting the Menstruation Phase, Follicular Phase, Ovulation Phase, and Luteal Phase that compose the menstrual cycle. “I decided that to design letters is just redundant,” she shares of her thought process. “I would just write down “follicular phase” in a particular type, and it didn’t really mean much. The days, the numbers, were far more important in terms of what I eventually wanted to say.”  

Devena provides an overview of the contraction methods by interviewing many women of various age ranges to understand better the contraction method used and their experiences. From synthetic hormones to natural fertility methods. It seems The topic in the brief will focus more on informing cyclical health, understanding PMS and filling some of the gaps that seem to be missing in fully understanding young women’s cycle biology and various holistic and intuitive avenues that can be explored to honour all those who have a monthly cycle. It still seems that there is a bias towards stopping periods to prevent unexpected pregnancies. Is stopping periods the only way? Are people being informed of all aspects of cyclical health? What are they? The period in this documentary seems to deem having periods as a problem. Is a woman’s mental cycle a problem? Or is it the lack of education how can women be empowered to choose based on all the facts?

Women’s Health Hubs 25 million government-funded scheme to be set up over ten years to help with individualised women’s health care. Highlighting there is a long way to go to educate and allow for space for women to be empowered through choice and education on sex biology and hormones, lifestyle and overall cycle health.

kristian I think Genna it was you in tutorials or some other meeting where I heard about your idea first. Back then I remember you had a bunch of ideas and now it has taken form and you’ve narrowed it down. In general I thought that each of your ideas were brilliant and it is nice to see one to come alive! If it wasn’t you and I remember right, I am very sorry 😄

Everything in our life that is something we are scared or ashamed to talk about deserves more attention. The topic is not familiar to me, but I already know that I am proud of you for choosing a topic that is very important regarding health of women. 

That is an INTERVENTION that we are meant to do!
