Science has an image problem.

How do you show people something that's too small to see?
And if you can't, are you sure they understood it?

Hi. We're Vivid Biology

We take cutting edge science and turn it into illustrations, infographics, and animations.

About us

Vivid Biology is a UK science illustration studio that makes your science stand out. We know the importance of scientific accuracy and don't excuse artistic laziness as artistic licence. We focus on concepts and composition rather than complicated renders.

What makes us different

We love science and data. We also love art and design. We think it's criminal that these are so often seen as polar opposites. We believe in communicating science clearly, and it's a lot easier to do that with well-designed visuals.

Who we work with

key clients


We work with research and industry to clearly visualise complicated concepts that they have difficultly explaining. We specialise in cellular processes that aren't easily seen or photographed, and in new technologies that would otherwise be obscured by jargon.

Medical communications

We work with scientific and medical communications companies to create technical illustrations or figures. We regularly redraw graphs to fit journal specifications and adjust larger figures to illustrate complex processes.

Public engagement

We also work with researchers and educators who want to grab attention, particularly from those who don't usually engage with science. Just because science is serious doesn't mean it has to look boring.

Where next?


We create vibrant and yet accurate illustrations from scientific research papers that you don't need a PhD to appreciate.

Design Services

Science Lovers

We bring our science illustrations to new audiences by putting them on products that appeal scientists and non-scientists alike.
