Well, I can finally announce that I am the lead designer for the identity system for Vote For Science, the organization that is a continuation of the hugely successful and impacting March For Science that happened earlier this year! The organizers contacted me and asked if I was interested in making a full branding/graphics system to be used on their next big push for highlighting science based legislation and politicians for the next few years.
I had a blast coming up with a versatile symbol system that could fit into a wide variety of social media formats and look good at any size. More will be revealed as the system rolls out over the next few months, and hopefully the traction gained will keep momentum moving forward on keeping science, logic and research hand in hand with law and government.

My SCIENCE BUILDS THE FUTURE posters have been some of my more popular and well-shared images on the internet. I was contacted in December of 2016 by the national headquarters of The March For Science, a non-profit volunteer activism group that was organizing an event of the same name to be held on Earth Day (April 22) in Washington DC, with sister marches across the country. The purpose of the marches was to bring attention to the defunding policies and dismissal of science-based research/support by the incoming Trump administration. After the impact of the Women’s March on DC, the March For Science organization hoped to build upon the momentum of that historical event. After seeing my “Science Builds The Future” series, they contacted me to involve me in the process.
The initial request from the March For Science organization was to have me design just kid’s t-shirts for them to sell at the Washington DC march and online previous to the event. When I turned in my designs, the organization liked them enough that they offered the shirts in children’s AND adult sizes, and in the end, more adult shirts were ordered than kid’s shirts. The organization also produced 24″ x 36″ posters of these designs.
You can still purchase my t-shirt designs through the March For Science online store.
Science builds the future, and now you can own these posters that prove it! Blind your friends with science and your excellent sense of design and taste!
What started out as a one-off design exercise has become an ongoing call to highlight women in the S.T.E.M. fields of science, with teachers and educators asking me for these posters to encourage female students of all ages to pursue careers in the science fields. Now more than ever, science and research must maintain a solid foundation towards building a better future for all of us.
Using propaganda styles for the powers of good, these posters can now be purchased from my online store. These will look great in your laboratory, classroom or dorm room!
Hey, just saw this nice interview with the good folks of local art outreach program KalamaDoodle, a monthly social drink and draw get-together that brings together the creative community of Kalamazoo. Thanks KalamaDoodle, you guys rock.
