Client Testimonials

I had been looking at Designs That Cell’s work for a while, impressed by their unique designs, clarity, colour schematics, range of scientific ideas, and was planning to engage with them to create conceptual models. I wish I had not waited so long! They were absolutely wonderful to work with, professional, and produce such high quality work. From the initial consultation, to creating drafts and integrating feedback in really thoughtful ways, the end product has always surprised and impressed me and really helped to improve the communication of my ideas in creative, engaging and attractive ways.

Working with the Design that Cell team (and especially Natasha) was a great experience and I highly recommend them. I have requested their help for a illustration for my PhD thesis and they were very professional in responding to my requests (a lot of them!) and super quick in finishing up the work. Very affordable prices as well. Highly recommend!

It was a pleasure working with Sarah to design a figure for our paper and we were thrilled with the end result. Looking forward to working with Sarah again in the future!

Clinical Psychology Resident, Alberta Children's Hospital

Sarah was the creative force behind our first series of infographics that are being used on our website and social media channels. Sarah was able to synthesize complex research questions in a visual and engaging way using a patient friendly voice and layout to explain different aspects of clinical trial research. We are very pleased with the development process and the outcome.

Lisa Callahan

Communications Leader, Canadian Cancer Trials Group

In stressful times of writing a thesis I sought out Designs that Cell to reinvent some figures based on my own ideas and already published work. The work clarified the ideas I was trying to portray and was complimented by both my colleagues in presentations and reviewers for manuscripts. I highly recommend Designs that Cell for a professional display of your scientific ideas that are feasible and produced in a timely manner.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

I have had the pleasure of working with the DTC team as they’ve developed a healthcare provider educational and decision-making tool focused on patient anxiety. The quality of the DTC work is excellent—the provider tool is already getting a lot of praise—and the DTC team was wonderful to work with—responsive, flexible, and able to visualize ideas in ways I could never have imagined myself.

Assistant Professor, Simon Fraser University

I had been looking for help on a scientific image and came across Sarah's graphic designing skills. 
In my opinion, a unique background that Sarah brings as a graphic designer is her knowledge of biological sciences. Communicating our image requirements was really made easy by this. In fact Sarah, added her own thoughts and creativity to the overall design of the image. Sarah is probably one of the very few skilled scientific graphic designers we have around.....would highly recommend her for such projects!

Assistant Professor,  Queen's University

I got an illustration made by them and loved it! They were very efficient in organizing a video call to discuss what I wanted in the illustration and also very responsive when I asked for a few modifications on the drafts they sent me. They have talented people that took a simple diagram I had in my thesis and turned it into a very professional-looking figure.

We reached out to Sarah to create some illustrations for a review paper our research group was writing. Her work is incredible and she got edits back to us very quickly. Sarah is brilliant at what she does and I would love to work with her again!
