Illustrations of climate change impacts on bird habitats
I was approached to illustrate a new multidisciplinary research project called ECHOES looking at the impact of climate change on bird habitats around the Irish Sea. As the pandemic had changed the launch plans, the team were looking for illustrations that could be used across digital media in the new everyday standard of Zoom meetings. A particular challenge involved communicating both complex scientific details and big picture goals in a way that is accessible to a wide group of non-expert stakeholders.(continued below...)
As well as creating digital illustrations for the key aims, I drew presentation slides for the introduction of the project and attended the launch event to create digital graphic recordings remotely. The visuals will be used in future engagement work and have been produced bilingually. You can read more about the process in this interview on the ECHOES website.(continued below...)
Here is what ECHOES Project Manager Crona Hodges had to say:
Laura was a pleasure to work with and we are delighted with what she had done on our projects. It was extraordinary how she absorbed the complex information so quickly, presented that back with such skill and clarity and produced beautiful and engaging illustrations.
