Production, Circulation, and Drainage
This two-page textbook spread is the result of a collaborative effort of three students in the Biomedical Communications neuroanatomy course. For this group project, a pre-determined style guide and colour palette were followed, and a studio environment workflow was emulated, with each team member taking charge of a different stage of execution. My role was the conceptualization and design of the illustrations and layout and the composition of text. Illustrations were then vectorized by Kim and rendered by Felix. The goal of this spread is to communicate key anatomical and physiological aspects of cerebrospinal fluid at molecular, tissue, and system scales.

How to Micropipette:
Forward Pipetting Technique
This sequential illustration was originally created as part of the portfolio requirement for application to the Master of Science in Biomedical Communications program at the University of Toronto. The overall goal of the piece was to demonstrate how to perform a complex task requiring manual dexterity using a series of images alone. This specific sequential illustration was designed as an instructional poster for undergraduate science students learning and applying laboratory skills for the first time. It is intended for display in a wet laboratory training setting to serve as a reference and guide for proper micropipetting technique.
