Design for Science Book printed

On 16, Apr 2014 | No Comments | In Thesis | By Steven Burrows

For the workshop, I printed copies of the handbook for the participants as a reference for the topics we covered, as well as a touchpoint. Feedback from the workshop was used to revise the handbook to it’s current form. Changes included: improving visual clarity, modifying the language (removing unexplained design-speak), and adding a few new topics based on the questions I was asked during the presentation.

Workshop Success

On 02, Apr 2014 | No Comments | In Thesis | By Steven Burrows

I led the Design for Science Workshop today at Colorado State University. There were six participants—two people could not make it last minute—which ended up being a good number to facilitate active discussion and enhanced my ability to spend time with each participant. My goal was to make these researchers more aware of the value of design and narrative as a tool when communicating their science, especially when communicating with non-scientists.

Midterm Critique Feedback

On 06, Mar 2014 | No Comments | In Thesis | By Steven Burrows

Leister —

  • A good amount of progress has been made and the topic is interesting.
  • The motion graphic piece needs a stronger ending. Talk about what the workshop will do for them.
  • Consider self-esteem as a major factor in motivating people. How can this be used in my workshop?
  • Have designers also look at the Experiment case-studies (in addition the the scientists) to see if they can also guess which ones were funded correctly. This will test if designers have an eye for projects that might be funded successfully more so than scientists (or not?!)
  • The process book in progress: the type is too big and too crowded. Test print everything!
