Dorothée Post is a geographer and graphic designer focused on information design, illustration and visualization of research. She collaborates with different research groups, societies and companies in Europe to design information.
Relevant and conscientious research does not only require knowledge and a lot of time, it also deserves proper visualization. Since 2019, I’m working with my clients on the visual presentation of research, consulting scientists on how to improve graphics or layouts and making my own research on how professional Information Design can be integrated in Geosciences.
