Project: Physical Biology of the Cell
Client: Garland Science/Taylor&Francis
Physical Biology of the Cell maps the huge and intricate landscape of cell and molecular biology from the distinct perspective of physical biology. Working to visualise physics is a rigorous process, requiring deep thinking and much discussion with the authors to translate complex ideas into clear figures.
“ Nigel Orme is an innovative and talented artist who helps bring critical scientific ideas to life. Working with Nigel has been a centerpiece of my learning and creative endeavors for nearly two decades. Everything I think about in my attempts to bring together physics and biology is seen through the prism of how Nigel might help us either turn our quantitative thinking into corresponding illustrations or alternatively, to figuring out how to turn his compelling illustrations into corresponding mathematics. I have now worked on 6 book projects with Nigel and every time, his work has transcendently defined these books.”
