Autistica - Anxiety Explained

An animation for World Autism Awareness Week


Autistic people are 4 times more likely to suffer from anxiety than non-autistic people. This coupled with a lack of understanding around autism can lead to some difficult situations to navigate. Autistica wanted an animation for World Autism Awareness Week that broadened understanding of what its like to suffer from anxiety while autistic.


Told from the perspective of a person with autism and anxiety, the animation clarifies what the triggers can be and what anxiety feels like. 

The bright, bold and poppy animation, scribble motif and stylised characters allowed us to clearly convey emotions (which is important for autistic people) without being unsettling or anxiety-inducing in itself!
