Designs & infographics

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

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.

Turn your data into clear visuals

Infographics

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.

Science communication 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. Such as a combination of a report, website, animation video & infographic.

For the researchers at the HvA we designed their research report, to make it look less like a Word document. However, it was still 180 pages, so we also added a summary brochure and infographic for people with less time to read. We incorporated this all into a website to promote all these products.

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.

Animated video

We help you design any dynamic content, from social media GIFs to animation videos to explain a scientific project. Give us a call to brainstorm about solutions for your project!

Campaign (TV) video Bits of Freedom

For privacy organization Bits of Freedom we’ve developed not only the website for their Short Course on Manipulation, but also their social media campaign & this animation video that was published on national television!

Animated video EVICT research project

The researchers from the EVICT project wanted to tell their audience about the work they were doing and why it’s important. We developed a creative animation video in their corporate style.

Basics of Burn Care website

For Global Surgery Amsterdam I built the Basics of Burn Care website which contains all the information for the treatment of burns. I made a video to show how valuable this website can be for healthcare professionals.

COSMIN conducting a systematic review of outcome measurement instruments

We have been working with COSMIN researchers for years. They conduct research into outcome measurement instruments and provide training on how you can conduct a systematic review yourself. This is so complex that we have designed a 3D marble run for this tutorial video to explain it clearly to students.

Using origami with material & health sciences

Innovative researchers at Wageningen University asked us to create an animated video showing how they use origami to solve societal problems like gastrointestinal diseases. We created a nice video to show off their work.

Introduction of the Nutrition Scientists Academy

For my own organization I created the video to show the benefits of becoming a member. With an overview of events, smooth animations and background music including a voice-over.

HvA research project on diversity

For a qualitative research study on diversity among teachers at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam, we developed a report with video where we put the stories of the teachers in the spotlight.

Policy effects during COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the researchers of CEPHIR (for which we also developed the logo & many infographics), we created a video with the results of their study to promote change from local policymakers.

Liesbeth always came up with creative and appropriate solutions. Because Liesbeth also took on the design of the web site, she played a major role in the creative process. She was also able to guide us in that process where necessary, by asking the necessary questions or presenting a number of options to map out the possibilities. Without Liesbeth, the website would not have turned out half as great as it is.

Esther Crabbendam, campaigner Bits of Freedom

Liesbeth is great to work with. She is creative and critical. She built us a professional website and animation video that will definitely stand out among other websites. I definitely recommend working with Liesbeth.

I have had the pleasure to work with Liesbeth to finalize a research project at Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. She created the best design for a research report and animated video. I will use her services and ideas again to communicate future research results.

Creative campaigns

For Bits of Freedom, the Greens/EFA and research groups

Do you want to have a real impact? Are you not afraid to get creative and think out-of-the box? We LOVE developing creative campaign websites for topics that make the world a better place!

For the Greens/EFA we created an EU campaign around the Digital Services Act. We went all out with a retro design, interactivity & storytelling about online manipulation. Inspired by the design of Windows95.
For Bits of Freedom we created their campaign website around online censorship, profiling & dark patterns called “Korte Cursus Manipulatie”. They were an amazing client and it was so much fun developing this incredibly creative scrollytelling website. We helped them with the concept, storytelling and writing engaging texts as well as create the design and all interactions.

For a group of researchers at Erasmus MC we created an infographic and a scrollytelling website with their story. It’s a national campaign to urge the government to create new legislation to ban smoking in cars when children are present. It resulted in a letter to parliament and ongoing efforts to make this legislation possible.

Based on research from a PhD candidate working on equity in medical school admissions, we created campaign cards to use on social media. She wanted to convince policy makers to take action. We also sponsored a scrollytelling campaign for this important topic.
