This was an invitation for the public to understand the number of thoughtful decisions that go into creating a beautiful science concepts graphic. How does one conduct research and translate complex, yet abstract, ideas into effective images, within a limited space (particularly on a T-shirt), and with a limited number of colors (more T-shirt screens/colors mean higher cost)?
