THE CHLORINE TABLET PROJECT
This is my first Studio project introduced at National Institute Of Design (NID), which is based on spreading awareness about â€˜How to use chlorine tabletsâ€™.
We were asked to brainstorm and come up with possible project ideas under the theme of water and I chose to focus on water borne diseases in urban slum areas of Ahmadabad because slum dwellers do not have much awareness about it and they donâ€™t even have proper information about the correct usage of chlorine tablets. The Link workers whose role is to spread awareness about these issues themselves donâ€™t know the actual process of its usage.
It is really essential to take basic precautionary measures for diseases like Typhoid, Diarrhea and Jaundice. Being a Graphic design student, I felt the need to provide guidance in the form of informative packaging as one of the ways to prevent these diseases from spreading.
Working on this project was a great learning experience. Though there were times when the project took longer to shape and I failed to meet the deadlines, I got to learn how to handle a real-time project like this.
