Workshops : Figure, graphics and illustration design for Scientists -- A year of workshops

Almost a year ago, I gave the first workshop "Figure, graphics and illustration design for Scientists".
Since this first workshop, 8 other sessions have followed in 3 others institutions. Each of them had their challenges and surprises - the main one being to adapt to the audience. Physicists and Biologists do not share the same struggles when it comes to figures for example - but the principles behind a good figure are the same for everyone. The specificity is more related to the tools that people are familiar with in the different fields and we had very interesting discussions about the differences in graphic standards in those fields.

Since there was a lot of request for this workshop from the beginning, I wrote a supporting document that I distribute to the participants besides the slides I use during the workshop.
It helped me to be structured and have a good story line for this workshop and I hope it is useful as a future reference for the participants.

If you are interested in this document, drop me an email. And of course, if you are interested in such a workshop for your institution, get in touch.
