Crowd Sourcing Design

Earlier this week I asked about iconic images in Chemistry on Twitter. Below if the storify of the results:

While many of these images come to mind for me I wanted to ask others what they thought. I’m working with a graphic designer to create some promotional materials for graduate students and wanted to gather more than just my personal opinion on what stood out as iconic. So often we skip the ask others stage in design, which is fine if we’re making something for ourselves. Even if you don’t have time to do a huge study you can usually find some people on one or more social media sites who are happy to weigh in and help you crowd source ideas.
