About the project
The main aim of this animation was to highlight the effects of Ebola; how it spreads, the symptoms it causes; and ultimately why it's such a deadly virus.
As with all the work I've done for The Guardian it wasn't just me working on this, a whole team of Journalists and science editors helped produce the script. Alex Purcell, the head motion designer then provided the art direction, I was then set the task of animating everything and putting all the pieces together.
