Scientific Illustration & Graphic Design

Increasingly, I've become interesting in exposing scientists to ways they can better communicate their science through art. I primarily use my iPad for digital illustrations that have been used for outreach, as well as in professional talks and publications.

 Fukami Lab Illustrations:

For my lab, I've generated a series of easy-to-use graphics depicting various organisms in our study system (nectar yeasts of plants native to Northern California) for use in figures, posters, and presentations. I also created an infographic about the nectar microbe system in our lab for use at outreach events.

Illustrations for scientific publications:

Some illustrations have been commissioned specifically for scientific publications. If you are interested in commissioning a piece for a publication, please email me at calliech@stanford.edu

Graphic Design

I have taught several graphic design workshops for graduate students at Stanford. I've also produced several YouTube videos for the broader scientific community.
