A visual look or brand helps define institutions and the type of work conducted. To ensure the "look" presents a positive and accurate brand, Darlene teams with designer Jessica Simmons. Together, working with the staff of Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, they created a new brand including a new logo, website, and total visual appearance that reflects its state-of-the-art research.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a well-produced video is worth about a million more. Darlene teamed with writers and producers at National Geographic, Smithsonian Institution, and Co Lab Productions to create short videos that tell science stories in captivating ways.
