Illustrator and designer Stina Löfgren’s series of instructional drawings for the Swedish Municipal Workers Union, Kommunal illustrates the heavy lifting involved when working as a nurse. In a series of gifs Stina conveys the correct actions for “brutal grocery step-ups,” “extreme sheet pulling” and “deep squat assistance,” amongst other informative bends. Her precise line-work allows the details of the communication to be portrayed through the character’s actions, and as well as their instructional value, each gif has a nice dose of humour to it through the maintained blank expression and awkward repetitive steps.
Stina has illustrated for The New York Times Book Review , Form Magazine , Lobby and the craft magazine Hemslöjd as well as exhibiting her personal practice.
