Electromagnetic Fields and Your Health

The Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. (EPRI) is a nonprofit organization that conducts research and development relating to the generation, delivery and use of electricity for the benefit of the public.

As a freelance designer I was asked to collaborate with EPRI’s scientists and engineers as well as experts from academia to help create a tablet friendly digital interactive publication that addresses topics such as: efficiency, health, safety and the environment.

It was challenging but at the same time rewarding experience to be able to conceptualize complicated scientific information and ideas in visual format.

“Exposure to 50-60Hz magnetic fields from electric appliances can vary greatly depending upon how close it is to the body. Intensity falls off dramatically with distance.” — Zaffanella, 1992 and EPRI, 2010
