About Us

Our services include 3-D and 2-D animation, illustration, multimedia presentations, and concept development for pharmaceutical advertising agencies, biotech companies, broadcast studios, publishers, medical product companies, and law firms, among other clients.                                            

Our illustrators and animators each hold a Masters in Medical Illustration; a degree which reflects an intensive curriculum, including coursework in gross anatomy, histology, pathology and neurosciences, that they followed alongside of medical students.  With our background in science and medicine we are able to solve many complex communication problems. Whether you need to show a complex drug action or unique anatomical view we will find the solution that best fits your needs.
