Fowler-Finn Lab | GRANT WRITING + FILM + PHOTO + WEB DESIGN
Dr. Kasey Fowler-Finn is a rockstar, and she was ready to let the world know it. Dr. Fowler-Finn had recently been hired for a tenure-track position. She was launching an inclusive lab group, developing groundbreaking projects, and was searching for a creative collaborator to whip her branding, website, and upcoming grant proposal into shape.
Showcase the amazing personality, productivity, and inclusivity of this bad@$$ scientista. We wanted to let science know it’s okay to be confident and sassy. It’s okay to have flaming pink data visualizations. It’s okay to be honest about breaking molds and glass ceilings, all while celebrating your research program and your science.
This was actually the first large National Science Foundation proposal that we ever collaborated on, and we were floored when it received glowing reviews and full funding. It was our first proof of concept that powerful storytelling leads to powerful grant proposals.
Our goal with this proposal was to hone in on (and develop an emphasis around) the most engaging aspect of Dr. Fowler-Finn’s study, which in this case was temperature-sensitive reproductive behaviours and possible mating barriers resulting from climate warming.
