Our inhouse design services provide a one-stop shop for your document. By integrating editing and design, we maximise the impact of the text through thoughtful design and reduce the turnaround time of your publication.
Good design can make your document more attractive, approachable and understandable. Biotext designers choose colour, imagery, typeface and layout to set the mood of the publication, and best convey complex information and key messages.
The impact of a document can be substantially increased by considering the visual presentation of the information at the same time as preparing the text. Our writers, editors and designers consider how to add value to the text by using visual features such as key points boxes, diagrams and other graphic elements to guide the reader through the information.
Infographics are graphical representations of information that can illustrate complex science or other information concepts quickly and clearly. Because of our scientific understanding, Biotext specialises in this area. Our writers, editors and designers work together to develop and produce effective infographics for a wide range of topics. See our page on infographics.
Page layout, figures and graphs:
We have advanced skills in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop for publication production. We have developed an integrated workflow with our editors using style mapping with formatted Word documents for a seamless transition to design. This saves our clients time and costly errors at later stages in the publication process.
Illustrations and photography:
We prepare original illustrations or artwork to suit the publication. Our inhouse designers can create diagrams or redraw existing diagrams, and source photography and illustrations, and negotiate the appropriate licences.
Video and animation:
We develop short informative videos and animations for online delivery. This includes developing scripts, storyboards and graphical elements, and organising location-based video shoots, voice-overs, music and postproduction.
We develop data visualisations for print and web. We create effective designs based on scientific conventions to help users analyse and evaluate data. See our page on data visualisation.
