Going from "humour is the best medicine".
A large format magazine on the 'art of overthinking'. The magazine is a mixture of serious information on mental health and humorous content to put a smile on the face and take the reader's mind away from worries and anxious feelings.
Most times, we human beings prefer to avoid talking about our weak moments we had in life. As much as we know mental health exists, we possibly find society tending avoid acknowledging its importance when life becomes a chore. There are times we forget to take care of ourselves. And there were times my creativity fluctuated while designing this magazine.
In fact, during the creation of this magazine, I have had an anxious feeling sitting in my chest. I would find myself asking questions on the design. "Does the illustration look good enough?"; "Will the reader understand my humour?". However, to let the creativity flow, I decided to get to the ground of my anxiety and understood that it comes from worrying about doing something wrong. So, it made more sense to embrace the feeling and ‘do something wrong’. Why not? ‘Something wrong’ will lead you to ‘something right’. Right?
We can get so caught up wanting to do things right that we forget that we are humans. If we always do everything right, then when do we learn? Isn’t the purpose of a mistake to learn how to do it right?
