Master's Reseach Project

 A patient education video following surgery candidates’ journey from diagnosis to treatment. This animation aims to 1) educate all preoperative patients on the risk of anemia, and 2) to improve awareness of PBM using character animation.

What is medical illustration? Why hire a medical illustrator?

Like other professional artists, we solve visual problems. We work with scientists, physicians, or other content experts to translate complex information and medical jargon for different audiences: students, patients, researchers, investors, or policy makers.

 

Medical illustrators are...

Researchers

+ More Info

Medical illustrators know that understanding the probldm is only half of the solution. That’s why before beginning their creative process, they often start with background research. This includes reading scientific papers, interviewing content experts, and sometimes observing surgeries or visiting a lab.

Most medical illustrators have advanced training in both life sciences and visual communication, often a master’s degree from an accredited graduate program. Accredited programs all feature a combination of science courses along with art training, including anatomy, pathology, biochemistry, and neuroanatomy.

communicators

+ More Info

We do more than just making things pretty.  Think of an anatomical feature that’s too difficult to capture, a molecule too small to be seen, or a series of interactions with too many uncertainties in between –– it takes more than an eye for aesthetic to interpret the data at hand, and synthesize the data into visuals.

Early adopters

+ More Info

Contrary to popular belief, ink and paper are not the only things in our toolkit. Medical illustrators know that the industry is constantly evoving with technology, and that’s why they will always be learning. You will find medical illsutrators specialize at every stage of the digital production –– designing, storyboarding, 3d-modelling, animating, rendering, editing, or programming.
