These 3 editions of journals were designed as a tool to be used by people with fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a chronic invisible illness characterized by widespread musculoskeletal and neurological pain. While treatment options can sometimes be limited, changes in diet, exercise, and a priority placed on mental health are proven to help patients with their quality of life.
As someone with the disorder, I wanted to design these journals as tools I wish I had found when I was first diagnosed. Although fibromyalgia is a very serious and life altering illness, it must be attacked head on with a vital emphasis on self care. Positivity is often times the only way to make it through the day, and I wanted the journals to reflect that upbeat and positive voice while encouraging everyday use to answer the prompts.
 
Die cuts and acetate windows reflect the concept of invisibility, while fluid and unexpected typography was used to mimic the unpredictable and ever-changing nature of this illness.
