Mental and neurological disorders are hard enough to explain in words, but how about with just a few blocks of color? Graphic designer Patrick Smith tries to capture an impressionistic sense of some serious illnesses with his minimalist designs.

Smith created these posters in the hope that they might be used for a mental health awareness campaign. I must admit, I get a bit of a chilly sense every time I look at that depression poster.
