I recently edited, designed, and produced a series of three educational booklets for patients with the genetic conditions Trisomy X, XXY, and XYY (Klinefelter syndrome) for the nonprofit organization AXYS. The booklets are distributed free of charge to young people with these conditions, and as such they needed to be accessible and appealing. Cartoon illustrations by Harry Briggs http://www.hairballdesign.com/ are fun and casual without being trite or “too cute.”

The booklets were designed to coordinate with the organization’s recently updated website, http://www.genetic.org/
