A native of São Paulo, Brazil, graphic designer and illustrator Rubens LP (“Seeing is Believing”) has worked with companies worldwide, including Microsoft, Nike, Absolut Vodka, Sony Ericsson, Coca-Cola, MTV, Folha, Editora Globo, and Ride Snowboards. When not at his desk, he enjoys nature, art history, movies and books, video games, beauty, friendship, and—most of all—life.

Laura Putre (“Evolution of the Textbook”) is a freelance journalist from Cleveland whose articles have appeared in Miller-McCune, O Magazine, The Root, and the Chicago Reader. She loves walking on the beach, spending time with friends, and narrative journalism and wishes she’d had an interactive science textbook when she was in college.

Freelance writer Virginia Hughes (“Seeing is Believing”) lives in Brooklyn, New York, where she partakes in Brooklyn-y things like book readings, coffee cuppings, and dog sitting. She likes to write about brains, drugs, and genes, sometimes all at once. Her articles appear in Nature, Popular Science, Scientific American, and a quirky science blog called The Last Word on Nothing.

California-born, Brooklyn-based designer and illustrator Keenan Cummings (“Evolution of the Textbook”) enjoys working for a roster of clients from large organizations and brands to small publishing houses. In his personal projects, he explores themes and ideas he cares about: education, health, science, and the creative process.
