OVPR Research Visualization Workshop Series


Tuesday, September 19, 2023
12:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Researchers are invited to join Steve Alvey, graphics specialist in OVPR’s Office of Research Development, on September 19 from 12-1 pm, for a virtual presentation on the best practices for developing conceptual figures and other visualizations that communicate research in clear, compelling ways. This is the first in a series of research visualization workshops; future sessions will include tips on working with designers and how to maximize emotional impact (the “wow factor”) in research figures.

In the first workshop, learn the fundamentals of design, including effective use of color and typography, that help grant proposals or presentations come together. Simple and appealing visuals also help broad audiences better understand complex data, ideas and impact. The presenter will provide examples of proposal graphics that exemplify best practices
