Project Details

What We Need
  • A high-resolution digital version of an illustration that can be used across multiple channels (web, print, and/or merchandising)
Additional Details

We are staring a project called Migration in Harmony and need an illustration for the initiative. Migration In Harmony is a network to integrate discipline-isolated research on changing migration patterns in Arctic coastal areas to maximize cooperation and advance knowledge on the movement of peoples, economies, cultures, and ecosystems catalyzed by climate change, urbanization, and globalization. We need your help to create an illustration of Arctic migrations.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have the idea for an illustration and a website to put it on, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a dedicated staff person to help you along the way, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to support the travel of early career scholars and students to Migration in Harmony workshops

There is a documented need to bring the Arctic's disparate research communities together, and in particular to "encourage more research on how species will move and interact in cold environments, the consequences for biodiversity, and animal and human health and wellbeing," so that cooperation can "facilitate rapid response, and maximize the use of limited research and management resources." Our Research Coordination Network will meet that need by establishing a collaborative network.

Chandler is an incredible illustrator and I could not recommend her highly enough. She diligently listened to our needs and vision, and contributed her own design insights and expertise to produce an illustration that we will use widely in our email newsletter and website. We are 100% satisfied with her work and strongly recommend using Chandler to bring your organization's vision to life.
