Abstract
This project was conceived with youth between the ages of 10 and 20 in mind. The reason being that these years are full of dramatic and consequential change as well as being a very important time for laying strong foundations-physiologically, mentally, and emotionally-and for setting a rhythm for the rest of one's life. It is a delicate time of change, growth, and reassessment. It can also be a time of great confusion and isolation. For this reason, material that is equally enticing as it is useful about health and basic body function is essential. The goal for this project is to create a bridge between the advanced medically educated world and the raw sprouting world of the next generation with specific focus on the body, its basic functions, layout, health, and nutrition. Learning and applying these things during this time in particular, as I mentioned above, has especially profound and recurring consequences for the rest of one's life. For this reason, material like this project is highly important, yet it is also surprisingly rare. Needless to say, a delicate balance of many qualities is necessary for this goal to be achieved and well received by my intended audience. The following are a few examples of these qualities: simple; accessible; cool; enjoyable; socially congruent and applicable; visually stimulating, sensitive, and colorful; personable; practical; intelligent; easy and fun to read; grabbing; humorous; engaging; encouraging; and that which leaves the readers with a desire to learn more about their body, health, and nutrition.
