Overview

We're a small community hospital that wants to promote F.A.S.T. stroke awareness through simple, informative designs that "raise the bar" for F.A.S.T. stroke icons that are currently available.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Men and women who are at risk for a stroke (55+) or are caregivers for people who may be at risk for a stroke (all ages, but skews female, 25-40).

Requirements

Current F.A.S.T. icons (see attachments for reference) are usually too complicated, too hard to understand, and too amateur for us. We want to raise the bar, both visually and in terms of "at a glance" communication.

To do this, we want to develop a set of F.A.S.T. stroke icons showing the 4 principles of F.A.S.T.:

1. FACE
Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?

2. ARMS
Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?

3. SPEECH
Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Can he/she repeat the sentence correctly?

4. TIME
If the person shows any of these symptoms, time is important.
Call 911 or get to the hospital fast. Brain cells are dying.

The icons should embody the following qualities:

1. Simple, iconic.
2. Clear and easy to understand.
3. Elegant, high-end look and feel.

The icons should not be:

1. Cartoonish or childish.
2. Garish.
3. Complex.

We're looking for icons only; we don't need the associated text.
