Two weeks ago, I attented a course on visuals for science, taught by Barrett Klein. This visiting scientist at the Uni of Konstanz brought us with general knowledge on visuals and their impact on viewers. We trained on different techniques: scientific drawing, photograpy and image manipulation. We also dedicated some time to analyse and comment personal production (CVs, posters scientific graphs...) to improve them in the future.
I namely spent some time to design a logo for my lab and also worked on some old figures from my Master thesis on the phylogeny of Myotis. Both projects require more work but I hope to post news about that soon on this blog :).
