We created two illustrations for Design Modus to accompany one of their client’s research. It shows the production of gold nanoparticles using a high power green laser and gold particles in a stream of water; and a second close-up of a gold nanoparticle cluster.
We created a cover illustration for Design Modus to accompany one of their client’s research. It shows the assembly of coated nanoparticles into a larger structure, fused together with a laser.
We created a piece of art for Pint of Science which is an international organisation which brings together detailed science talks on a wide range of cutting-edge research, in an informal pub setting, with plenty of beer. We used data from the Protein Data Bank to build an illustration showing the battle between a tumour
We were hired by BBC Earth to produce a series of three animations to accompany a longform article on the Origins of Life. As this was quite a technical article, the videos were to provide some visual relief, explaining some of the complex concepts more clearly. These focused on: DNA, and how it assembles and
We were recently hired to produce a series of animation clips for Science Photo Library, showing some of the complex nuclear fusion reactions that occur in the Sun, including the CNO cycle at the end. Here is a selection of our favourites! Science Photo Library provides licensing of striking specialist science imagery, with more
Animation of a zoom out from the inside of a single atom to the entire galaxy. The first scene shows a single quark, one of three making up a proton (red) in the nucleus of an atom. The nucleus is surrounded by electron shells (blue). The atom is one making up one of the
Our visualisation of the complex decay chain of a uranium atom has just been chosen as Science Photo Library‘s clip of the week. U-238 is a radioactive element with 92 protons (red), indicated to the lower left of its chemical symbol, and 146 neutrons (yellow), giving it a total atomic mass of 238 (upper left
We were recently hired to produce a series of animation clips for Science Photo Library, showing how various things work. Here are our favourite eight! Clip 1 ) Catalytic converter. It consists of a honeycomb structure, which provides a large surface area. The inside surface is lined with the catalyst, which is a combination
Other than it having an awful name, we’re super excited to have an illustration shortlisted in the Vizzies, which is run by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Popular Science magazine (which I buy to look at the pretty pictures). Do please cast your vote, and if you happen to like ours best (hint hint),
A series of genetics animations we produced for Science Photo Library, showing: (1) The transcription of DNA to mRNA, (2) Translation of mRNA to protein chains, (3) The mechanism of how smoking can alter DNA and prevent normal DNA function, (4) UV radiation damaging DNA structure, (5) Nuclear radiation causing a DNA mutation, (6) Polymerase
