Principles of Visual Communication for Science


WHEN October 21, 2022
1-3 PM EST WHERE New York City WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute in New York By Invitation Interested scholars please contact

Scientific research is only relevant when it is shared, understood, and applied. Can the choice of typeface or background color affect the impact of scientific data? Researchers need to understand how to employ visual tools to communicate effectively to all kinds of audiences. In this practical workshop, Goffredo Puccetti and Erin Collins demonstrate how to use principles of graphic design to create graphics that engage and inspire. Participants learn the fundamentals of graphic excellence, typography essentials (it’s not every day that you announce the discovery of the Higgs boson in Comic Sans!), and have the opportunity to improve their own graphics.

Convened by
  • Erin Collins, Instructor of the Arts in Design and Alumna, NYUAD
  • Goffredo Puccetti, Designer and Assistant Professor of Practice of Visual Arts, NYUAD
