The key visual is an image motif that is used in project to enhance recognition. Similar to Cover Art, the key visual should be both aesthetic and informative, as well as somehow "catchy" design.
Key visuals that I produced here were used in science conferences and a program.
RNA 2022 Annual Meeting
This key visual was created for the 23rd Annual Meeting of the RNA Society of Japan in 2022. Since this meeting was held in Kyoto, I paid homage to Choju-jinbutsu-giga, famous scrolls found in Kyoto's temple which are said to be created in 12th-13th century. The visual is used for a poster and a brochure.
I copied a linear monochrome drawing style, but many parts were modified or added to show scientific meetings, such as central dogma (left) and vaccine and virus (right).
