    Biographical poster on Nobel Laureate, Tu Youyou, who discovered a curing herb for malaria through Chinese traditional medicine. She became the first Chinese Nobel Laureate in medicine and the first female Chinese Nobel Laureate in any category. The poster layers three main elements that make up Tu’s legend: black and white photography of microscopic malaria parasite, stark outlined typography translating to “Tu Youyou, anti-malarial warrior” as well as large pill shapes. Her persistence and achievements move me to tears and this poster is a tribute to her anti-malarial legend.
