Coralie Legrand is a freelance motion designer and illustrator from Brussels, Belgium. Coralie uses storytelling and visual communication to break down complexity into digestible content to help create a wider impact with scientific research.

Coralie will talk about the added value of design, illustration and animation in communication tools. Her focus is on projects on sustainability, science communication and social impact. Coralie creates animated content and visual communication tools through storytelling and design to help deliver a message to raise awareness, inform or educate.

Coralie will showcase two animated videos that she is co-creating together with SEI’s Matthew Osborne for ‘Low-carbon development in East Africa’ to support the research in its goal to reach practitioners in the renewable energy space.

The dialogue on “Low-carbon development in Africa: How to visually create impact” will be held online via Teams Live.
