from the lab bench to custom scientific content

after 15 years in scientific research using tumor and stem cell systems, it was time for something new: graphic design tailor-made for biotech and the life sciences.
brand identities, infographics, custom illustrations as well as proof-reading and editing of scientific or science-related content by someone who actually knows what you are talking about.

biotech and beyond: try me to transform your complex topic into compelling visuals.
