Introducing the mobile science communication magazine: SWIPE SciComm


I'm SO EXCITED to share a major new project with you!!!


We’ve been keeping this project secret for the past 6 months, and it’s now time to reveal that we created the world’s FIRST science communication magazine!


Introducing...

💥 SWIPE SciComm 💥

Wait, what? Yes you heard right!


My team and I realised that there was not a single science communication magazine out there, so so we decided to create one!


And since it's 2022, and we don't like to cut down trees for paper or burn fuel to ship it, we made it mobile-first 📱. It's a new kind of magazine that you can read on your phone without downloading any apps simply by swiping and scrolling. 📲


You have to try it, it's easy and addictive!


Here's an overview of what to expect:



  • Interviews with leading personalities

  • Tutorials

  • Reviewing the “science” of science communication

  • Guest articles

  • Case studies


The launch issue features:

  • An interview with Dr. Randy Olson, scientist turned film-maker and author of a ground-breaking series of books on storytelling.

  • A climate communications-focused piece by Dr. Simon Torok, founder and co-director of the science communications agency Scientell.

  • A fantastic tutorial for creating 3D art in Adobe Illustrator by Dr. Khatora Opperman from Animate Your Science.


… And. So. Much. MORE! Now, and into the future too! 🤩


Oh, and before I forget, the magazine is 100% FREE (and always will be).
