calchemist got their new illustration or graphics by running a design contest:
Solar Fuels Institute needs a new illustration - ARTIFICIAL TREE
Check out calchemist's Illustration or graphics contest…
SOFI's goal is the development of efficient, cost-effective photocatalytic systems that use the energy of sunlight to produce liquid fuels. Our science is inspired by natural photosynthesis, yet relies on the discovery of a spectrum of earth-abundant, robust materials.
What's your vision?
I am looking for an illustration that depicts an "artificial tree"-- one that is manmade and takes in CO2 (carbon dioxide) from the air and uses energy from the sun to convert water and that CO2 into sugars (nutrients for the tree). Imagine someone tapping a maple tree to get liquid sap. Our technology is the same in spirit: sun + water + CO2 = liquid fuel (that you can put into your car, for example). I particularly like this art: http://cleanenergy.harvard.edu/ I am looking for something that is futuristic, sophisticated yet inspired by nature. Current technologies that capture CO2 from the air look something like this, and we'd like to be more inspirational: http://globalthermostat.vaesite.net/__data/c35afa093b81aa5dddb8dc84388f1938.jpg By the way, this is not science fiction-- we have researchers from around the globe that can make this happen. =) ADDED: I am not looking for a literal representation of the technology. I would prefer a tree that took inspiration from the illustration here: http://cleanenergy.harvard.edu/

Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Illustration or graphics starts at €319.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their illustration or graphics.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
calchemist collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
