Mark (@markbelan) holds a Bachelors in Arts & Science, a Masters in Geochemistry and Astrobiology, as well as a Masters in Biomedical communication. Before becoming a freelance scientific illustrator featured by Nature, he did research in astrobiology which could be useful to find life on other planets.
In this episode, we dive into different aspects at the intersection of art and science: what they mean to him, finding balance between beauty and functionality, we briefly touch on neurodesign, and discuss thoughts on hot topics like AI-generated images and Comic Sans.
Science communications and design shape the perspective of the general public around new research; I think it’s an essential skill for all of us to develop. I LOVED chatting with Mark about this, hope you enjoyed the episode too :)
