The goal is to generate striking and exciting art work for the cover of Trends in Analytical Chemistry that is relevant to our article that was recently accepted for publication.
The article is about small, portable, field deployable instruments for sensing chemicals for applications in water & air quality monitoring, forensics, border security, biomedical research, and microbiology.
Please see attached a pdf of a very rough idea for the art to help instruct you:
(i) hand holding an instrument (instrument should be in an open palm unlike that shown in pdf)
(ii) magnifying glass "zooming in" on the key piece of technology (a chip that separates molecules)
(iii) images that represent the types of applications the device is for (e.g., water quality, air quality, biomedical, border security, forensics, and microorganism analysis)
The art should fit in a circle about 12 cm in diameter. The journal requires JPEG format.
Here is a video of what the chip in the instrument looks like (start at 1:35 into video):
Please be creative! I will be available to provide suggestions to designs you upload.
