We can create summary infographics, biomedical schematics and process diagrams that enhance the clarity of grant proposals.

Lab websites

We can help set up simple lab websites that can be easily maintained. We can also create bespoke artwork to accompany your website, including animated infographics.

Manuscript figures

Need data plots redrawn to journal guidelines or a complex schematic to accompany your next article? We can create print-ready vector files under tight deadlines.

Cover artwork

Design training

Onsite training for researchers and students

Drawing technical figures

Learn how to create figures in vector software packages. We teach scientists how to create publication-ready data figures and schematics in Adobe Illustrator or Affinity Designer.

Graphic design for scientists

Make better posters. We teach scientists the basics of graphic design including composition, hierarchy, colour theory and typography, and then apply it to poster design for conferences.

Public engagement

Research institutions, museums and galleries

Product design

Science is part of culture, which means it can also be irreverent, beautiful and fun. We can create stylish gifts that have a science story behind them. These can be giveaways at an event or merchandise for gift shops.

Exhibition Artwork

We've exhibited at science-art exhibitions since 2015. We're interested in collaborating with researchers to produce large-format artwork for exhibition display.
