Designs & infographics

Work with us to design beautiful and clear infographics, posters, reports, flyers, videos, animations, and PowerPoint presentations from your research paper.

We don’t just make things pretty. We dive into your topic of expertise to make sure we understand your research. Then we extract the essence and create modern, innovative, user-friendly designs to make sure that people will remember you and your research.

Tell us about your research

Turn your data into clear visuals


We understand your work, so we can help transform your research into clear, beautiful visuals. Infographics have their own place in science communication because they say more than photos or text by themselves. Use them in your articles, lectures and (poster) presentations, or on your website and social media!

It’s very easy: just send us your research paper. We will extract your main message from it and develop it into an infographic that conveys your message in a design that fits your organisation.

The Online Scientist really works together with you to make your research accessible to a wide audience. They are very creative, quick to reply, and developed designs that align perfectly with existing ideas and materials. The design of the infographic they developed for us therefore fits very nicely into the design of a larger project.

From Word document to professional report

Report design

Are you still sending out Microsoft Word documents to colleagues when you share your research results? Let us design a professional report with beautiful images, infographics and a design that is easy to read. Your research deserves it!

For CEPHIR, an academic workplace in Public Health in Rotterdam, we designed a report that summarized their research on the changing food environment in the city. This report convinced the local government that they had to reduce fast food outlets in the region, which was covered extensively in the news.

The Online Scientist managed to translate our ideas into the website and provided useful suggestions and advice. The team has a direct and open communication style: they reply very quickly and help out with any website-related problem swiftly. Therefore, we enjoyed working with The Online Scientist and we are happy with the result!

A full design package

Design packages for impact

Sometimes you need to create impact with multiple audiences, and a single infographic is not enough. We can also develop an array of design materials around your research topic.

For the researchers at the HvA we designed a full research report so that no information was lost. We added a beautifully designed summary brochure, for interested parties with no time to read the full report. An infographic was designed to make sure the key concepts were clear. And we incorporated this all into a website where all materials and backgrounds could be found.

Liesbeth and Stephan listened very carefully to our wishes, translated them into designs and texts that were understandable and visibly highly attractive. Their greatest asset is their ability to communicate clearly and constantly address the various professional voices involved by translating between the different audiences. Many thanks to you both.

The clear presentation of complex concepts or processes is an art in which the people of The Online Scientist excel. I have worked with them on three projects I am intensively involved in. Liesbeth and Stephan have succeeded in presenting the results of research and development processes around the role of teachers in a visually attractive and clear manner.  That has helped us to get our message across to teachers and school leaders! Their work on infographics and websites for these projects have made my activities and projects more meaningful for day to day practice in schools.

Well-written copy to support your message


A lot of what we do is writing, and while it’s often part of something bigger like a poster or website, we can also just deliver written copy of course. We’re trained in the understanding of difficult topics, and our journalistic experience and approach ensures that we define and clarify your message in the best way. If you want to produce content over a longer extend of time, we can also help you to write user-friendly and understandable texts for the web yourself.

  • Professional texts for websites or print materials
  • Native English and Dutch texts
  • Translations at an academic level
  • Anything from subsidy applications to museum exhibit signs!

Dynamic content to breath life into any topic


Video and animations are very suitable choices to communicate about science; they’re captivating media and a great way to tell good stories and explain difficult topics. Enhance your lectures, website or presentations with a video! It helps your audience understand, and saves you the hassle of preparing it. If you make it shareable, your audiences will be grateful for the outreach – whether they’re journalists, your peers or the general public.

Some options:

  • Animations showing your study design or process
  • Layman’s explanation of your results
  • Profile of your lab or company
  • Video interviews with researchers
