Creating a graphical abstract, infographic or presentation that is visually attractive and scientifically accurate  isn’t an easy task.  We have a library with thousands of scientific illustrations, mostly of life science to help scientists improve their communication.

However, a beautiful illustration does not fix everything. It needs to be well placed and match the other elements of your creation.
Therefore, in addition to the main illustrations, using our platform you can find several backgrounds, shapes, icons and secondary illustrations. You can use your creativity to try different combinations and choose the best one.

We’ve made a tutorial to help you find the best way to combine backgrounds, shapes and illustrations, to create a landscape. We chose a nature theme, but you can use the tips to create a graphical abstract or infographic about your research field.
