Compelling graphics for trade publications

Two CMU researchers whose papers were accepted in leading trade journals needed to submit graphics for consideration as cover images. Designers from Marketing & Communications worked closely with the authors of the papers, who helped explain the research and shared their opinions about the design options.

To the excitement of the researchers and designers alike, both creative designs were chosen for their respective journal covers: Neuron and Nature. The cover art earned praise from several co-authors from other institutions because it helped create more prominent exposure for the papers and the associated research.
