Who is this site for?
I created this website because I wanted a place to discuss the use of design in science. As a Creative Designer in science communication for the past twelve years, I have worked across STEM with scientists, clinical researchers, engineers, surgeons, epidemiologists, global health experts, statisticians and criminologists. I hope my experience and perspective can be a resource for both scientists and designers to work better collaboratively on science using design principles.
An important part of being a scientist is being able to communicate about your research clearly and effectively to an audience. Visual communication and design are an integral part of science communication.
Find out more about how you can use creative communication tools to bring art and design to your science.
Designers have the unique ability to communicate complex ideas and concepts in a variety of ways. Science communication and the design of science has never been more crucial to get right. As designers, we have an opportunity to create connections with science.
Learn more about what working with scientists is like for designers, plus ways to think about how you can incorporate some of the concepts and values within science communication in your own work.
Art and science have been intertwined for the ages, with many throughout history finding themselves in both roles as artist and scientist, particularly around things like anatomy and drawing the human form. There are scientists who are also artists, there are artists who create detailed scientific illustrations and others who create cartoons to teach children about science.
Take a look at some of the ways art and science can intersect to form incredible connections.
