The publication Picornaviridae – Designing Model and Visualization Concepts in Virology written by the designer & researcher Joosten Mueller, deals with the visual representation of virus structures by taking their geometric origins based on the example of the Picornavirus family into account.
One of the main issues for the visual concept was address readers of a wide audience from design experts, cultural scientists up to natural scientists and therefore finding a compromise between science and design.
The combination of a neutral, bold typography, soft colours with a clean, contemporary layout of the book and an interactive model sheet and poster, tries to make the content clear, good readable, comprehensible and interesting for both target audiences.
