Peter Coppin | Main menu | Projects | Explanative illustrations


Starting in September 2007, I began PhD research that focused on theoretical gaps that I had encountered while running the BigSignal and EventScope projects. This research lies in the domain of new media, and graphic representation in particular. I seek a scientifically-grounded understanding of established conventions in the applied visual arts to inform a principled and rational approach to Visual Information Design.


This research direction is partially inspired by my previous work as a freelance illustrator [info below] that focused on creating explanitive illustrations for government proposals and technical publications/reports.
