How do the two Scientific Visual Communication workshops differ?

Good Graphic Design Practice is a presentation of good graphic design practice as it relates to scientific visual communication. The guidelines and tips described in the presentation can be applied to any kind of visual communication (a figure, slide, poster, paper, etc), no matter what software package is used to create it. Participants are strongly encouraged to ask questions and to provide examples of visual communication from their own scientific field that can be discussed during the workshop.

Creating Figures using Adobe Illustrator is a practical, hands-on session that concentrates on one particular software package (Adobe Illustrator), and one type of visual communication (scientific figures), with a particular emphasis on drawing illustrative elements for conceptual figures. If you have always wanted to try Adobe Illustrator, but don't know where to start, this workshop provides a very good entry point. The workshop describes a methodology for creating adaptable figures from scratch using Illustrator and participants get to use this method for themselves. The graphic design guidelines described in the Good Graphic Design Practice can also be applied to the figures created during this workshop.
