Custom Illustration


Our expert scientific and medical illustrators will work with you to create professional custom illustrations, figures or posters to help you visually communicate your findings.



With our custom illustration service, our team of experts assists you by generating original illustrations based on sketches; re-drawing low resolution diagrams and flowcharts to create publication-quality figures; or making graphs from data tables. Our illustrators work directly with you to turn your ideas and data into figures that will help you communicate your research to the world, be it in print, posters, or presentations. Our team will answer unlimited follow-up questions about the work to guarantee your satisfaction.


  1. Provide a clear sketch of your intended result. Our illustrators provide a professional result based on your visual concept. The sketch can be drawn by hand, in a program such as Word or Powerpoint, or with a combination of techniques. Additional written instructions are also helpful, but a sketch is crucial; we cannot work solely from a written summary or manuscript.
  2. Choose a style from our stylistic examples. Any of these examples is suitable for publication in high-impact journals. Your choice of style for your illustration should be based on your personal preference and the appearance of similar figures that have been published in your chosen journal.
  3. Include any original data or images you would like us to incorporate into your illustration. High-resolution photographs and vector graphs will produce the most attractive and accurate results, although we will redraw elements as needed to provide you with a high-quality illustration.
  4. Plan for your illustration to fit onto one physical page of a print journal. If you are ordering a visual abstract, please consider the size restrictions of your chosen journal. If you include too many elements in a single illustration, your order may be delayed while we ask you to decide how to divide it into two or more illustrations.
  5. Make sure to allow enough time for illustration. A Custom Illustration takes 5 business days from when you approve the price quote, and the turnaround time may increase if you order multiple illustrations.
