science communication products and tools


Kate Hodge

I have been working as a science communicator since 2001. My Honours degree in Marine Science combined with skills in communication design bring a unique perspective to any project. More than just a graphic designer, I understand the science and can guide you in how best to communicate complex scientific results to a broad audience.

Tools and software I will use for your project include:

  • Adobe Creative Suite
  • ArcGIS
  • HTML and CSS coding
  • Range of open source and commercial content management systems for website development (Drupal, Wordpress, Plone, DotNetNuke, and many others)
  • Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint
  • any others - I enjoy learning and using new and different tools to best deliver any project
