The task, in the unit OPB557, was to design an infographic about myopia control and the assessment panel was asked to identify the most eye catching submission that had the greatest potential to be used with myopic patients and their families.
In judging the winning submission, the panel noted that the colour choices made the information highly visible, the graphics were simple but understandable, there were not too many words, and the information was factually correct.
“Clearly a lot of time and thought went into producing this infographic. Marco Ting, who used his software expertise to design and develop the graphics, provided the most important contribution to the production of the infographic,” said Professor Sharon Bentley, Head, School of Optometry and Vision Science at the Queensland University of Technology.
The judging panel comprised a PhD student, a post-doctorate student, a practice owner, and two academics working in the myopia field.
