New Signs of Breast Cancer Poster

After celebrating a birthday yesterday (which funny enough is the same as WordPress’s birthday!), it’s back to work. So, I’ve created a survey designed to assess if my *new* breast cancer poster is communicating correctly. This is an interesting experiment, because it is taking visuals that communicate, and then seeing what the verbal interpretation of them is. I have a dilemma with this, as it may not matter what some of these things are called, as long as people are able to see the signs and recognize them if they see them for themselves, no matter what they call them. But that is the complication with working with visuals, in the end it usually comes down to the text than can support them, especially in the academic world!

But this exercise has helped me redesign aspects of this that I thought were weak without the text descriptions next to them. Knowing that these are tested without the descriptions has motivated me to critically analyse each of the signs and make them better.

So, take the quiz if you are so inclined, or get your friends to do it. It takes 5 minutes!
