ABOUT VIVID BIOLOGY

SCIENCE, ART AND STORYTELLING

01.
WHO WE ARE

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

02.
WHAT WE DO

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

03.
WHY WE DO IT

The best design problems are those with constraints. We believe it’s possible to make great visuals whilst still getting the science right.

WHY YOU MIGHT NEED OUR HELP

THE CASE FOR GREAT VISUALS

01.
SCIENCE NEEDS TO STAND OUT

Science is difficult to communicate. It’s full of jargon, complicated to conceptualise, and usually couched in caveats when it’s expected to have all the answers. Even scientists from different fields struggle to understand each other, let alone people without a scientific background.

02.
VISUALS DO IT BETTER THAN WORDS

Everyone can appreciate the aesthetics of a good visual. Whereas unfamiliar words or sludgy prose can be alienating, pictures draw people in and provide a good starting point to ask questions, explain processes and tell stories.

03.
CONNECT WITH DIFFERENT AUDIENCES

Different audiences will have different questions, different knowledge backgrounds, and different attitudes towards the same science. We polish up data figures, create explanatory technical figures, feature artwork to represent science, and public engagement tools.

Careers & Opportunities

PhD Industry placements

We have hosted three PhD students on their three month industrial placements. Their backgrounds varied between Neuroscience, Physics and Synthetic Biology. We co-create placements with students to find something that is interesting to them and useful to us. Previous students have curated SciArt exhibitions, created award-winning animations, and build graphics toolkits to help researchers make better figures.

Contact us for more details.

 

Student internships

We have hosted four undergraduate summer interns since 2016. Internships have ranged from 2 to 8 weeks in duration and students were all studying biological sciences. Students were trained in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and WordPress. Internships involved launching Kickstarter campaigns, creating infographics, writing captions for images and creating education resources. Design training for science students was made possible thanks to internship grants from the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol.

We are interested in hearing from graphic design and biology students. Internships are paid. We advise students to investigate whether their institution awards internship grants for SMEs.
