Designs with a soul
Gabrielle Merite. Proper noun. Scientist powered by plants and activism. I am not: a graphic designer with 30+ years experience or qualified in fine arts. I am: a Science graduate, creative, analyst, advocate for humanity, cat lady and feeling awkward writing this.
Scientific-Journalist-turned-Artist, Data Visualiser, I bring a bright, cheerful element to data visualization. Respecting the history of science and reviving modern elements with collages, textures and photos – I am passionate about revealing truths, social justice, activism and humanity.
While other data visualization experts create more feminine, hand-drawn or computer-generated designs. I come with an informed background in science. I use real human photography with a retro feel. Teamed with insightful data presentation designed to connect with the reader and elicit emotive connections.
