Our design portfolio

The only thing that really speaks is data. So have a look at ours! From posters to infographics, and from websites to e-learning courses – here you can see for yourself how we used design and technology to help other scientists develop their websites, e-learning course and presentations.

Browse through our work and see how a well-made website can make a difference for your cause:


For a PhD student, two professors and a lecturer

A personal website is a great way to maintain an online presence that is easily shareable and independent of labs, consortia or other joint efforts. We created personal websites for a variety of professors, some of whom used it to present their key papers and lectures, while others showcased their books and media appearances. What will you put on there?

A lot of scientific research is conducted in consortia or public-private partnerships. A website for such a joint effort can serve a number of purposes: it may satisfy the outreach requirements of a subsidy program like H2020, it can inform the public and the media about the progress and results of the project, and it serves as a platform that facilitates the cooperation between the institutions involved.

If you are on a mission to inform the public, why not use a website as the interface? It’s a great way to present information in a clear and understandable way to a huge audience, while also making sure you can update it when needed. With these types of projects, we tend to go further than just building the website, and help the scientists to engage the public.


For clinical trials and an epidemiological study

A website can serve an ongoing study or research project by recruiting participants and informing them about the background and helping them get in touch with you or, in some cases, a support group. It simultaneously informs the public, media outlets and policy makers, and serves as a legacy for when the experiments are over and the results have to be published.

Interactive online tool

For Louise Elffers at the HvA (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) we developed an interactive online tool based on her research that helps universities improve the accessibility of higher education. The tool is available at www.toegankelijkheidhbo.nl

We really enjoyed working with Liesbeth. It was certainly not an easy assignment, but Liesbeth took a firm hold of it, thought carefully and critically and always asked the right questions. As a result, there is now a wonderful online tool that not only makes us very happy ourselves, but has also started to work enthusiastically with many teachers!

We develop infographics for even the most complex topics. For any audience, scientific colleagues or the general public.

The clear presentation of complex concepts or processes is an art in which Liesbeth and Stephan of The Online Scientist excel. We worked together in three projects and they have succeeded in presenting the results of my research into the teacher leadershop in a visually attractive and well-organized way. 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.

We help you design any dynamic content, from interactive PDF’s, to animations to explain a scientific process, and videos with interviews. Give us a call to brainstorm about solutions for your project!

Animation video Bits of Freedom

For privacy organisation Bits of Freedom we’ve developed not only the website for their Short Course Manipulation, but also their social media campaign and animation video’s.

Animated infographic

For Sport Data Valley, we developed an animated infographic. Sports is all about movement, so why not add some to stand out!

BSc study Nutrition and Health

We have a created this animation for the prospective students of the Nutrition and Health major at Wageningen University. The clip describes the Belly Fat Study, a research project executed by the Human Nutrition department.


Video template for recipes on Voedingenkankerinfo.nl

For one of our website projects (www.voedingenkankerinfo.nl) we also designed and created the video template that they use to make recipe videos.



Explore the e-learning modules we developed for academic education

So far we have created eight e-learning modules for Wageningen University, and another handful about prostate and bladder cancer for the European School for Urology. This overview shows you which topics we tackled, and who is using our work every day of the year, 24 hours a day, all over the world.

“We have been developing interactive e-learning courses for academic education for years. The best thing about cooperating with The Online Scientist is that besides their extensive knowledge on webdesign, they also know what the e-learning is about on a content level, since they have a scientific education of their own.”

Dr. Ir. M.C. Busstra, lecturer and education developer at the Human Nutrition department, Wageningen University

E-learning oplossingen voor Universiteiten en docenten van The Online Scientist

Sensory Science

For a course on Sensory Science we made a module about how sensory research is designed. This module replaces a theoretical lecture.

Quasi-experimental designs

On top of a module on experimental studies, we also created an e-learning course on quasi-experimental study designs.

Experimental designs

For the Master course Exposure Assessment in Nutrition and Health Research we made visible how you set up an experimental study.

Information literacy

For the library of Wageningen University we developed a course on the topic of searching and citing scientific information.

Interactive exercises and quizzes

In the courses we build about bladder and prostate cancer we added many interactive many exercises because that’s the best way to learn.



(PowerPoint) presentation design

A presentation offers you a great opportunity to create impact. To utilize that opportunity, you will have to look beyond the standard bullet points and slides full of numbers. And you have to be willing to adjust your talk to your public: a lecture is not a speech, and both are different from a TED talk. This can be challenging, but we can help you deliver a clear presentation that fits the audience like a glove.

Of course we can also deliver a slide format so that every presentation from your group has the same appearance. When relevant, we incorporate your organization’s identity in it.

When professor Daan Kromhout retired, we made his farewell presentation. These are some examples of how we transformed his slides:

The Online Scientist created the website for our Horizon 2020 consortium TargetCaRe. In Horizon 2020, dissemination and communication to the public is of major importance, so having a good and attractive website was a priority for us. She managed to translate our ideas into the website and she provided useful suggestions and advice. Liesbeth has a direct and open communication style: she replies very quickly and she helps out with any website-related problem swiftly. We enjoyed working together with Liesbeth and we are happy with the result.

Dr. Marloes de Vries – van Melle, Project manager / research coordinator at Erasmus MC

We feel that The Online Scientist was a tremendous help in the making of this attractive website. Stephan provided direction in answering the questions; what is the level of the reader, how do you structure your message and what are the traits of a readable article? Liesbeth made sure the design, content and navigation of the website was complementary to the content.

Prof. dr. ir. Ellen Kampman, Professor Nutrition and Cancer, Wageningen University

We wanted a website that would inform both patients and physicians about the NutriProfiel service, and would also process order requests for people that ordered a personal dietary advice. Liesbeth designed a concept version of the website which we together further refined.
We really liked working together with The Online Scientist. Their background in nutrition means that they easily understands the purpose of our project, and their designer skills resulted in a very nice website. They also have the professional network to implement ‘webshop’-like features. Liesbeth is friendly and professional and also helped us to work on our website ourselves. We are very happy with The Online Scientist and we will certainly work with Liesbeth again!
