Informative illustrations: Illustrated Maps / Timelines & Chronologies

Maps and city plans have always fascinated me. With a single glance, you can learn so much about the city you live in, the country you’re traveling to or hope to visit someday. Maps can convey geographical information, population distributions, and political boundaries. Illustrated maps can enhance this with local peculiarities, popular travel routes, or special events. In timelines or chronologies, history can be illustrated in a chronological sequence of historical events. A collection of images can serve as a picture gallery to depict changes or developments over time. Timelines, whether horizontal or vertical, allow for capturing milestones at a glance and facilitate understanding of temporal relationships and resulting developments.

Scientific illustration makes scientific concepts, phenomena, and processes visually accessible. Images help generate an understanding of scientific topics that is often closed off to non-scientists. Illustrations assist in visually explaining research projects, experiments, and methods. This not only supports the public relations efforts of research institutions but also fosters people’s interest and curiosity in scientific research. Scientific illustration can convey information in a serious and factual manner but can also use wit and humor to convey the topics that engage the scientific community.
