Vivid Biology is a UK design studio that specialises in creating illustration and graphic design for biomedical research

We work with Biotech, Communications, Publishing, Universities and researchers to create engaging science visuals and sophisticated technical diagrams.

Distinctive artwork that makes science stand out

Technical Diagrams

Unique technical illustrations that clearly communicate how things work

Science Artwork

Product Design

We design prints, clothing and gifts

Our values

Artistic licence not artistic laziness

We like a challenge. We believe it’s possible to make great visuals whilst still getting the science right.

Find a way to work with the budget

We find creative ways to work within small budgets, and work hard at being imaginative with larger ones

Make great work

Making work that we're proud of is our most important measure of success.
