Surprising Result of the BIOSS Graphic Award

Graphical illustration of biological signalling

Graphical illustration of biological signalling

During the summer semester of 2009 BIOSS hosted a contest at the Freie Hochschule für Graphik Design und Bildende Kunst e.V. in Freiburg. The participating students were asked to graphically illustrate the topic biological signalling in cells and between cells" graphically. Roughly 40 different graphics were submitted anonymously and then exhibited.

The final decision of the jury was a big surprise: The first, second and third prize were awarded to the same artist: Maxi Böhm, a student in the 7th semester at FHF.
