Discover how graphic design shapes the way we think about health with the Wellcome Collection’s exhibition, Can Graphic Design Save Your Life?

The exhibition invites you to consider the often surprising strategies used to change public perception in several health arenas through graphic design, from the way we think about smoking to the colours used to make children’s wards cheerier.  

Browse through more than 200 objects and see how graphics can persuade, inform and empower, including anatomical pop-up books from the 16th century, cautionary posters, flashing pharmacy signs and works by Dick Bruna and Ken Garland.
