Researchers spend years immersing themselves in study, yet pushing back the frontiers of knowledge requires not only technical expertise but also an ability to communicate to a broad audience. For many scientists the greatest challenge is not in the lab, but in crafting compelling communication for funding bodies, industry partners and the public.
Molly Patton believes the solution is visual.
With a double degree from Deakin focused in Photography and Biochemistry - Molly has always fostered a dual passion for science and the arts. Now the founder and creative director of Patton'd Studios, she has taken on the challenge of crafting visual media that engages stakeholders from across the research-translation ecosystem. From conference presentations and journal cover art to pitch decks and web design, Molly is a passionate advocate for visual design at all stages of research and innovation, and firmly believes it has the power to attract new channels of funding and support for scientists of all stripes.
