The first step in our process is scheduling a call to discover your goals for the project and specific topic. The next step is researching existing graphics, the topic at hand, and then strategizing based on the research. After our research is compiled, the illustrator will prepare sketches. The sketches might go through several versions as we work together. After the sketches comes the last step:
the final artwork!
Depending on what we have discussed and what is outlined in the project paperwork, you are usually entitled to the reproduction rights for the usage and time period requested once the project is paid in full. Rogers Biomedical Media owns and retains the copyright to all images created
during the project.
Generally, the sooner the better. Since each project is custom-made, it depends on your needs and deadlines. With research figures for journal publications, it’s best to get in touch when the manuscript is nearly or fully complete, and as early as possible before the publication’s
deadline for submission.
Pricing is different for each illustration project and dependent on the scope, time needed to complete the project, resources required, and usage rights.
Creating an illustration can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months and is dependent on the scope of the project. Many deadlines can be accommodated with proper notice, quick client feedback, and if applicable, an additional rush fee.
Absolutely! Medical illustration allows me to combine my love of learning, love of science, and love of art all in one! There is nothing I love more than making medical and scientific concepts enjoyable and understandable to everyone.
