Vivid Biology is a tiny company of designers and illustrators who specialise in biomedical sciences. With degrees and masters in biomedical sciences, and a flair for Photoshop and Illustrator, we're experts at helping people to explain things that are too small to see.
We work with individual academics, biotech companies, and research institutes, to help bring their science to life. We also provide specialist support to medical communications, marketing teams and larger design agencies.
We've got over ten years of experience distilling research papers into artwork for seminar posters, journal cover artwork, and marketing images. We extract the key messages from research papers, come up with visual concepts to represent them, then work these into beautiful compositions.
We're good at creating figures that need to explain science without looking too 'scientific'. We inject just enough creative flair to give figures a unique visual identity without compromising on the underlying scientific information.
We've worked with larger design and digital agencies to provide specialist support with biotechnology clients. We're good at making sure that the scientists are happy that the details are right, whilst still providing great visuals and following design and brand standards. We've helped with technical figures, concept sketching, and animation storyboarding,
We once redrew and typeset over one hundred data figures for an academic manuscript in a weekend. We've got years of experience with redrawing figures, which means we're pretty quick at them.
Distinctive artwork that makes science stand out
Some of the companies, institutes and researchers we've worked with
We like a challenge. We believe it’s possible to make great visuals whilst still getting the science right. If we think that there's a better way to show something we'll let you know.
We find creative ways to work within small budgets, and work hard at being imaginative with larger ones. This means that we can work with clients both large and small.
Making work that we're proud of, and that our clients love, is our most important measure of success.
