The Lifeology team has been busy working with health professionals, from mindfulness coaches to fitness experts to medical specialists. We have been creating a series of Lifeology courses for LIFE Ascent, a wellness program that gives subscribers the tools needed to improve their health. It is a program based on learning, measuring and establishing habits across multiple areas of health.
This blog features the work of illustrator Sara Lynn Cramb, an illustrator and designer with a love of nature, animals, and travel. Sara creates educational work for children’s books, websites, apps and other media with a focus on engaging and educating young audiences about the natural world.
Can you tell us a little about your background?
Sure, I’m an illustrator and designer that works primarily in educational children’s book publishing. I also create illustrations for websites, mobile apps, and interpretive signage for museums and zoos. I’ve been freelancing for over seven years. Before that I worked as a graphic designer at a health and wellness company creating website designs.
How did you initially find Lifeology?
El Sorojsrisom of ScienceFindsArt.com put me in touch with Paige Jarreau in 2019, when she was initially looking for artists to collaborate with for Lifeology courses.
Have you illustrated a Lifeology card deck before?
Yes, I worked on Why are fruits and vegetables good for me? For LIFE Ascent I illustrated a course on Healthy Fats, Cerebrovascular Health, and another on Berries and Cancer.
Would you consider yourself a SciArtist?
Yes, the focus of much of my work is educational and informed by science. I’ve illustrated everything from organs to cells to the solar system and a whole lot in between for publishers, museums, universities, and educators.
The courses you illustrated were nutrition courses. Let’s focus on the Healthy Fats course. When looking at the course script, what were your initial impressions?
I thought this course had a lot of beneficial information and lots of opportunities for interesting character development. The idea for cute little characters representing different types of fats jumped right into my head and I think it works well for the course.
