The goal was to design and illustrate a series of portable, resistant flashcards on several topics in Parasitology, Hematology and Urinalysis for Small Animal Medicine practitioners and Veterinary students. These flashcards were to be used as an extension to
Dr. Gerardo Poli's already-available MiniVet Guide - an A6,
portable, complete reference booklet for vets and vet students
to use in their daily practice.
The topics illustrated range from Skin Parasites such as Demodex sp. and Sarcoptes scabiei, to Urinary Casts and different techniques to produce correct blood smears.
A initial research showed that a lot of other similar resources
in the market lacked high quality imagery and good graphic design that allowed them to be didactic and easily used. Therefore, I decided to mix realistic illustrations (similar to what one would see under the microscope) with modern and simple lines, trying to develop a didactic, high-quality product that had
not been seen before.
These flashcards can be purchased here.
