This was the main thing I worked on after finishing the biostats logo. I had a list of edits and a suggested layout from the clients, but had trouble making it fit exactly right… the end result was 3 alternative layouts. One closer to the original, one with a larger map, and one with 2 columns. Waiting to hear back which is preferred.
Project: Bio 311D backdrops
Client /Prof: (?)
completion status: Done
staff guidance: Maddy K
STA team members: Adrian
description/plans: Unit backdrops for Bio
To be completed: Friday 5/26
This was a fun one! While it may have been mostly photo sourcing, it required some bio research (yay!). For making 3 backdrops for different units of a bio course, the professor provided some guidance in the form of example clipart. Also, Maddy provided a nice template she used to make unit 4 (ecology) already.
The first unit was genetics and micro-evolution, which entails individual speciation, heredity, and cell biology. The provided pictures were this:
Final backdrop (a mixture of pictures from stock sites and wikimedia) ended up like this:
The second unit was macroevolution, a little more abstract. The only example graphics were a few phylogeny trees.
The topic itself includes larger evolutionary changes such as evolution of new organs, mass extinctions, adaptive radiation such as the Cambrian explosion, and horizontal gene transfer. I took some liberties and included more paleontological stuff to make it more visually interesting.
Final unit was physiology, the most straightforward.
I found some nice Unsplash photos of plastic organ models, which are more interesting than flat diagrams/clipart and less grisly than real anatomy photos. Perfect.
