Igor Kupec is a graphic designer from Slovakia who decided to create simple but powerful illustrations that depict various mental illnesses, disorders or diseases.

The artist created these illustrations in the form of the words that are used to label the various illnesses that are the subject of the artwork. The words are designed to actually depict the health concerns. There are many examples in the collection, some of which include the acronym 'OCD' being shown in small repetitive patterns, the acronym 'ADHD' shown scattered across the page and the word 'Schizophrenia' being doubled to give it a blurry, confused appearance.

Igor Kupec's poignant graphic designs offer a unique interpretation of the struggles that people with health issues relating to the mind must suffer each day.
