Sarah Edmands Martin digital and web design work for the D.C.-based quantum computing company, IonQ, has been selected by the international C2A Jury as an Honorable Mention in the 2019 Creative Communication Awards.
The C2A is an international awards program, and promotional platform for communication designers, agencies, graphic designers, freelancers, digital media designers, and for the world-wide creative community. The best campaigns, creative solutions, and ideas are selected and awarded by the renowned international C2A jury.
The jury panel comprised of an international pool of creative industry professionals from art and creative directors, curators, and publishers. This year, the jury included Pinterest Senior Creative Lead, Scott Ex Rodgers, Amazon Art Director Colin Gaul, and Unicef Art Director Shangning Wang, amongst others.
"IonQ is the world’s best commercial quantum computing company. As the company goes public for the first time, I helped tell the story of their ground-breaking technology via animation, illustration, and web design. These technical illustrations integrate the science with an artistic sense of wonder, so that the technology feels vibrant, smart and joyful.
As a designer, storyteller, and researcher, Sarah specializes in dark narratives and contemporary fable. An Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Indiana University in Bloomington, her work experiments with eclectic media—allowing diverse processes in printmaking, animation, and early photographic methods inform her design practice. She has two other degrees in English Literature and Painting from the University of Maryland, has taught design at the University of Notre Dame and Missouri University of Science & Technology, and continues to balance an active studio practice with research."
