Every year we are reminded of the incredible research that’s ongoing at UC San Diego Health Sciences. This reminder comes from the opportunity to design their annual publication, Discoveries, that highlights Health Sciences’ innovative work in research, health care and education. Our design challenge is to visually interpret each of the magazine’s articles in a way that powerfully and accurately conveys the remarkable achievements described in each story. UC San Diego provides some amazing visual assets (check out the vibrant cover shot that’s called tractography composed by detecting waterways in the brain). They also provide us the creative freedom to explore colorful layouts, custom photography, conceptual illustrations and other design techniques to bring each story to life. It’s a collaboration that we look forward to each year, and it always results in work we are proud to share with others.
