The team at Involution Studios — made up of Sarah Kaiser, Jane Kokernak, Kelly Mansfield, Harry Sleeper, and Juhan Sonin — created the Health Axioms card deck over an eight-month period. Starting with a dozen core, personal health habits, they turned these initial ideas into short catch phrases. Sarah and Kelly drew hundreds of sketches, which often drove the name and card story.
Next, Jane honed the narrative, based on research, and edited each axiom story arc. Throughout this iterative process of conceptualization and refinement, the team continued to brainstorm more ways — big and small — to influence health and life, incorporating those insights into the deck.
You can view a higher resolution PDF showing further detail in the process.
Thirty-two cards made it into the final deck. On the front of each card is a beautiful illustration reminding you of a specific axiom that can move you in the direction of better health. On the back of each card, we give you essential insights, tips, and help in manifesting that axiom in your life.
We want to print and distribute 3,000 copies of our Health Axioms. And you can make a small pledge for a big impact on our Indiegogo campaign. It’s just $15 for one set of cards. Give them to your work team, your social group, your family, your friends, your doctor, and your nurse. More than the gorgeous art and valuable life insights, you are helping us to amplify the clarion call to show the world a better vision for health. Doing good and getting something lovely for a modest price: What’s not to like?
What People Are Saying
“People are thirsty for health advice. They read, search online, and wonder: Am I doing OK? Am I doing the right things for my health? What if, when someone asks the universe (read: the internet), for health advice, they got back a quick tip, backed by evidence?”

Involution Studios’ hGraph — the only open source visualization for your complete health metrics — is being featured this month in “Digital Diagnosis: A New Generation of Healthcare Technology” in EContent Magazine.
The column, written by Eileen Mullan, explores how apps and visualization services like hGraph can help cut through the hassle of going to the doctor. Mullan writes, “hGraph is [...] designed to increase awareness of the individual factors that can affect overall health. Basically, it gives you (and your doctor) a holistic view of your health. You can have your entire medical history in one place, just like that. Imagine what something like hGraph will do for the future of healthcare industry (and for the time you waste in the waiting room)?”
“Digital Diagnosis” is the latest in a string of articles on hGraph. Earlier this year hGraph was featured in Wired.com as a part of their series “How Restyling the Mundane Medical Record Could Improve Health Care.” The Wired article highlights hGraph’s strong social component. By tracking the data for entire families hGraph illustrates how some conditions, like obesity and heart disease, can be affected by collective health choices. hGraph was also mentioned in Health IT Buzz, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services innovation blog. hGraph was a notable entry in the Patient Health Record Graphic Design Contest. The article notes that Involution designers “weren’t afraid to think outside the box, and both inspired the judges and challenged the status quo.
