I love finging science-themed artists on Etsy! NBDesigns features designs that perfectly balance talent, adorableness, and delight.
Their products include:
Bacterium earrings, complete with adorable monotrichous flagella and organelles.

Bacteriophage earrings

DNA Electrophoresis Ladder earrings

Erlenmeyer Flask of Love, complete with a itty bitty heart.

Petri Dish earrings


A microbiology charm necklace, featuring a bacterium, a heart flask, and a petri dish.

A necklace of a macrophage eating an itty bitty heart

And, because I am a complete coffee addict, I have to include these awesome golden coffee bean earrings.
 If I brewed them, would they taste like art?

All of then are so beautiful. They also made posters for Reverand Book and Saffron.

Designing Disorder

12 Mar

Talented designer Graphic Patrick, whose work and inspiration can also be found here, decided to challenge himself by designing posters of mental disorders. He took serious mental conditions, which are hard enough to fully describe in words, and with creative use of simple color, shapes, and space, successfully created series of graphic representations.

I absolutely love them. The depression one is quite powerful, and the narcolepsy one always makes me giggle (A close family member has it, and I will admit, it’s a pretty hilarious disorder. Except when they fall asleep while driving.)
I would love to see him tackle ADD/ADHD

Molecular Machines

11 Mar

I love this video, for so many reasons.
I love how he makes a point to talk about the importance of art in scientific research and education. Because of their tiny size, accurate artistic representation is the best tool science currently has to convey how molecule interact and behave.
I love how it gives one of the best scale perspectives of DNA and chromosomes that I’ve ever seen. Simply breathtaking.
And I love how he focuses on the specific fibers and signaling proteins, demonstrating how amazing our adorable little molecular machines are.
It’s a nine minute video, and worth every second of your time.
Enjoy!
