Microbiome Scientific Illustration for Nature

Created for Nature
The project

Nature’s creative director and the manuscripts’ authors envisioned a single scene depicting a diversity of cells: human and microbe. We researched over 35 cell types mentioned in three featured studies to ensure accuracy of scale and form. We took our inspiration from coral reefs, creating a scene that was a riot of color, shapes and textures to convey the idea of diversity of the biome. Translucency and an overall underwater feel were used to give the impression of a fantastic voyage in this detailed scientific illustration.
