Pollinators Series

We all love pollinators, right? Studio 2D designed this series of fact sheets to help encourage healthy populations of pollinators. The North Central Integrated Pest Management Center published these with funding from the USDA.

Integrated pest management (IPM) is all about controlling pests without a lot of chemicals. To encourage bees and butterflies, minimize use of turfgrass pesticides that can harm them, and plant flowers that attract them.

The best practices booklet has some detailed tips for lawns and golf courses. The fact sheet is a two-sided summary of those best practices. The habitat usage survey summarizes pollinator presence in the 12-state area.

Scientists need designers to get their research into the hands of people who can benefit from it. Susan Ratcliffe, PhD, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign trusted me to give her publications professionalism and flair. Because her reports looked good, they got more attention and helped improve the environment.

Integrated Pest Management

The North Central Regional IPM Center has been managing a grants program since 2003. Over $8 million was awarded to 96 projects that have addressed critical pest control and pest education issues. Impact has been felt from schools to farms.

Every few years a publication has been produced to highlight the achievements of the NCRIPM awardees. This is the last one of the series. Rather than present data, director Susan Ratcliffe, Ph.D., wanted a more visual approach. Large, colorful images; short, succinct summaries; subject matter tagged at the top; and state outlines used as icons; all help the reader to get an overall impression before reading more.

All involved are pleased with this coffee-table-ready booklet.
