Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
These five illustrations were commissioned by Asian Scientist Magazine for its white paper—"Five Years Of The Asian Scientist 100”. The commemorative report marks the fifth anniversary of the Asian Scientist 100, an annual list spotlighting Asia’s top scientific talent. The goal was to create compelling visuals that could encapsulate the remarkable stories of discovery and innovation.

How was the illustration used:
The illustrations were used specifically to demarcate the key themes of the white paper: 1) agriculture; 2) biomedical sciences, 3) chemistry and material sciences, 4) engineering 5) physics and mathematics. They were also a pivotal asset in Asian Scientist Magazine’s print and online editorial coverage and marketing campaign, appearing on its website and across all its social media platforms.

How did you make this work:
To break away from conventional white papers, I mixed vibrant colors with varied textures. I referenced key scientific concepts and photographs to conceptualize a visual illustration that represents the research focus areas within each chapter. These include gene editing, big data in agriculture, HUBO (a walking humanoid robot), fluorescent organic nanomaterials, and nihonium (aka element 113).
