Eglé Kazdailyte, represented by Agency Rush, was recently asked by Neris Analytics to create illustrations for their new product, an online laboratory. The company reached out to Eglé after seeing her impressive cover designs for The Guardian podcast “The Start.”
Neris Analytics is best known for creating 16Personalities, a popular online personality test. Their laboratory, which is still in development, will serve as an online platform for scientists creating personality tests to collaborate and communication with one another.
Eglé was given complete freedom to develop the concepts for her illustrations. Her idea was to design a laboratory where classical science meets high tech. In the image below, Greek philosopher Socrates is shown wearing virtual reality glasses and Marie Curie, a French-Polish physicist and chemist, is pictured working on a laptop. Eglé also wished to emulate the mystical atmosphere of a science fiction movie in her illustrations. In doing so, she was inspired by Aldous Huxley’s 1932 dystopian novel, Brave New World, as well as the 1927 science-fiction film “Metropolis.”
