Working with scientists
Gill works closely with scientists to help them create effective and adaptable figures, graphical abstracts and other forms of visual communication. Gill’s background in science means that she understands the constraints and conventions surrounding scientific visual communication. She ensures that she understands the specific scientific visual language being used, so that she can provide informed advice. Rather than simply creating a single figure, Gill provides scientists with a set of visual elements that they can adapt for further use in papers, presentations and posters.
During her collaboration with the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences at King’s College London, Gill created many illustrations for use by scientists in the visual communication of their research. You can view these illustrations from an Image Gallery webpage on the collaboration website, Neuroscience & Graphic Design. From there, research scientists can request to use any of the images in their work, under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 international licence.
Graphic design practice formed a significant part of Gill’s PhD research and she continues to use graphic design practice within her ongoing visual research. Click on the links below to discover more about Gill’s use of graphic design practice within her research.
