Many people think of science as abstract and numerical. But most of science is remarkably visual. Design plays an important role in science communication, but it’s more than just creating pretty pictures. Joe Hanson (biologist and host/writer of PBS Digital Studios' It's Okay To Be Smart) and Jennifer Jongsma (Director of Production at Annual Reviews, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the worldwide scientific community with a useful and intelligent synthesis of the primary research literature for a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines) will lead a discussion about the creative side of discovery and the new approaches to communicating science through visual expression. We’ll show examples of successful design and less-than-successful design, and explore and how designers and scientists can work together to communicate through an engaging and accessible language.
