What we do!

Ph.D. courses

The goal of our courses is to teach researchers skills in design and illustration that will make you comfortable creating journal covers,  posters, and presentations in an effective manner. Our courses are tailored towards Ph.D. students, but anyone is welcome to join, even if you don't need the credits.

Our workshops will give you a taste of what is taught in our certified Ph.D. courses. Here you will learn the fundamentals of good design and how to avoid common pitfalls in science communication. We offer adaptable workshops that run over a couple of hours or span multiple days, you decide the depth of the knowledge that you require. 

Commissioned illustrations

Time is a valuable and limited resource and sometimes there simply isn't enough of it to sit down and learn how to create beautiful images yourself.
The solution? Let us do it for you! With backgrounds in natural science, our team is expertly suited to translate your research into beautiful visuals for your next cover submission or grant application.

Spring 2011: The idea is born 

It was a Friday evening and Andreas was having a good time with his fellow colleagues in the coffee room at the department of Analytical Chemistry at Uppsala university. The discussion eventually led into why Andreas spend so much time creating drawings instead of doing lab work. He defended himself but was later convinced to develop a course in how to create better images for PhD-students.  

Autumn 2011: The first course

Visualize your Science course was given for the first time to 14 on Andreas' colleagues, two could not attend and they asked for another course.
