How did you make this work:
This project was the perfect opportunity to break the stereotypes around research and make learning a place of fun. I took a playful approach and made the illustration inclusive and accessible to all. I embraced the broadness of subjects, creating a crowd/melting pot of all sorts of subjects, reflecting the energy and the effervescence of the research field and the spirit of the festival.
