Delightfully Vintage STD Posters

27 Mar

I love these! If I ever have an office, I am going to print and frame some of these and hang them up. Or maybe I’ll just hang them up in my home.
Of course, that might freak out any potential boyfriends.
But it would be totally worth it.

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!
