Figure & Poster Design

Creating Scientific diagrams ranges from artistic promotions to graphical representations of data. This means an understanding of different software and how to combine them, from architectural and mathematical to purely aesthetic. We must create diagrams which are true to the data but are also visually engaging. Being organised and methodical in your creation of posters is also important. When managing dozens of image and text layers it is vital to have structure within the software. Posters must be proof-read and in most cases set up for print, which is another skill set in its own right. Often we only have one or two chances to get the poster printed under  time constraints, which means being level headed and communicating effectively with the client.
