This is what OCD looks like

Wightman recently graduated from Edinburgh Napier University and works for Ogilvy & Mather in Paris. His poster series White Noise communicates the message of intrusive thoughts when suffering from mental health disorders, specifically looking at OCD. Quite scary, to be honest.
