"While designing this I was thinking about its usability. Making it accessible for both social media but also, so it can become a poster if needed. People don't usually stop to read something with a lot of words on it, so creating a hook would catch someone's attention then lead them to want to learn more through the QR code. "
"When creating these I was trying to come up with a simple way to showcase each measurement, without making it seem overwhelming or too much to accomplish. I also added some positive side effects of the measures so people knew the benefits of each."
"I like writing poems, so when I came across a post on submitting a poem on the six measures to stay healthy, I decided to write one. While I was writing the poem, I wanted to use simple words so that anyone could understand and learn the 6 Measures to stay healthy. But, I didn’t want to write six different poems. So, I wrote one poem and mini paragraphs for each measure. I feel this made the poem easy to comprehend and handier to use."
