How Visual Language Can Help Us Better Understand Scientific Breakthroughs
Service matches neuroscientists and designers to translate research into illustrations
The history of medical illustration is fascinating and enlightening. Not only do illustrations help us better envision internal processes, they also offer a catalog of cultural belief systems and medical practices. The Leading Strand is a project founded by Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya that pairs together scientists and designers to bring a visual component to important research.
According to the project's website, the team hopes to “reimagine the role science plays in our lives and highlight important topics in research through visual experiences that communicate its nuance and underscore its significance.”
