"These days, when you hear people talking about “the vaccine,” there’s no doubt what they’re referring to. But when you think about it, all the vaccines you get at the doctor’s office, teach your body’s immune system to recognize and fight off diseases without you actually getting sick, are pretty incredible. And they were actually thrilling news stories in their time, too."

illustration of “When servers deliver our food with a hearty “Enjoy your dinner” and we absentmindedly reply, “You, too,” we tend to realize immediately that we misspoke. Now, we know which neurons in the brain enable us to catch such momentary glitches. The identification of these brain policers—known as “error neurons”—could open the way to discovering treatments for schizophrenia, autism, memory disorders and other conditions that disrupt our brain’s ability to self-monitor.” Client: Discoveries Magazine
illustration of “Presently, we realize that there are no vaccines and no specific cures for COVID-19. The only way to change the course of this virus is to change human action. The power of our screens can be targeted, and sending digital messages in a fast and effective manner can affect this change.” Client: Madwell + DPAA Global
illustration of “Consumers in the digital realm must be able to feel they’re being treated as unique individuals rather than as faceless consumers being shoved toward selections on the basis of their past user data.” Client: Johns Hopkins Carey Business School
illustration of “In the old days you just bought Rice Krispies so you could hear snap, crackle and pop. Now breakfast is part of your pre-workout. If you too thought that your cherished Cadbury, Nestlé or Mars, Incorporated chocolate would be safe, think again. Just one example of many is Cadbury’s Boost bar that has now evolved to meet your every protein and fitness needs with the release of the Boost+ Protein bar (offering 12g protein per bar). WTF?“ Client: GQ Magazine

illustration of “If you’ve ever served on a board, you know the feeling: The regular meeting has ended, you have lots you still need to talk about, but the next meeting isn’t for months. Maybe you need to discuss sensitive information that can’t be shared with the whole board. Maybe you just want a reality check on something. Whatever it is, you feel it can’t wait, so you do what members of a team always do in this situation: You start having conversations on the side.” Client: Harvard Business Review

illustration of “Murky waters but it’s thought to be due to both the effects of elevated dihydrotestosterone, a hormone converted from testosterone by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, and your genetic inheritance. Their combined effects cause the destruction of hair follicles and the supporting pilosebacious units they are connected to. If you’re unsure whether it’s going to happen, just look down the family Christmas lunch table to get an idea of your future…” Client: GQ Magazine
