Dani Donovan shares the unbelievable story of how she accidentally became a viral ADHD artist/influencer overnight.
She discusses vulnerability, validating others’ struggles, and using visual communication to change how we talk about mental health.
Designer + illustrator
Dani Donovan is a purpose-driven designer who creates ADHD illustrations. Her first infographic, “ADHD Storytelling,” went viral within hours and amassed over 100 million views. Her work has been reposted by celebrities like Mindy Kaling and featured in publications such as BBC. In a few short months, Dani’s relatable comics and her #NeurodiverseSquad hashtag helped her quickly become a prominent voice in the online mental health community. Her comics, jokes, Twitter threads, and TikTok videos aim to help those with ADHD understand themselves, feel a sense of belonging, and better explain their invisible struggle to loved ones. Dani’s influence has helped hundreds of people seek diagnosis and treatment for ADHD. She just left her full-time job to create ADHD content full-time; you can support her work at patreon.com/danidonovan or view comics (and her new online shop!) at ADHDDD.com.
