An interactive infographic
To empower dads with information and answers his questions about their daughters' development
Dads with daughters
I wanted to break down some of those awkward barriers that exist between dads and daughters when it comes to talking about topics like her period, puberty and birth control.

Research, Sketches, Scenario and a Coded Prototype
Dad wants to know what symptoms to expect when his daughter's first period comes.
Dad wants answers to his uncomfortable questions.
I collected the data that would be within this infographic. I created a research document that holds both contains both quantitive and qualitative data about a woman's development.
From the research, I created the four main sections of the infographic: Period, Puberty, Birth Control, and Self Care.
I placed the sections in the sidebar, as filters, so that dad could see as much or as little as he wants.
By creating scenarios, I realized a lot of the content the dad would be looking for was question-based.
I created a section of "frequently asked questions", where the dad could skim and find the answer his questions.See it
I decided to use circles because they can keep holding related information inside of them.
Initially, I used lines to show the relationship between the content.
The use of lines started to make the infographic look too complex.
I got inspiration from an information design book and decided to nest circles within circles to show the symptoms of a specific event.See it
I used color to differentiate the physical symptoms from the emotional ones. I also added tooltips to show what each symptom is, without having to move away from the landing screen. Both of these allow the dad to get information at glance.
Since it deals with the uncomfortable subject, I wanted to make it look very approachable and clean. For that reason, I chose to add a friendly sans serif and iconography.
The prototype follows the scenario I created prior, where the dad wants to be educated about his 12-year-old daughter.
