Ups + Downs is a book and public health campaign designed to educate the creative community about how to manage the both benevolent and malevolent beast of anxiety. This book focuses upon Emily Gosling's brilliant article, Ups + Downs of Designing with Anxiety, as well as information from MIND, a UK mental health charity. Additionally, it highlights famous creative artists, writers, and creators who have used their platforms to share and discuss their own personal battles with anxiety. Overall, this book seeks to show designers and artists who are struggling with mental illness that their journeys are valid, heard, and shared across the creative community, and that it is going to get better.

The warped typography on the front and back covers of the book was created by using a scanner, and the interior of the book echoes this design through the use of the halftone pattern and gritty photo texture.
