Medical Visuals produces medical scientific visualizations mainly distinguished by a clear, concise style. The strength of Medical Visuals is to translate complex issues onto a communicative and accessible image, without doing violence to reality.

Additionally Medical Visuals is distinctive in customer focus, short term delivery, experience and several digital techniques. Depending on the contract and the nature of the information we work with various styles that result in Graphic Illustrations, Graphic Plastic images & 3D visuals and 3D animations.

The clients include the Dutch Journal of Medicine, the Dutch College of General Practitioners, Quest Magazine, many Universities and Hospitals, the Academic Centre of Dentistry, Veterinary Institutions, different Educational Publishers and brain researcher and neurologist Dick Swaab.

The driving force behind Medical Visuals is Medical & Scientific visualizer Maartje Kunen. She graduated Cum Laude from the Post Graduated Course in Scientific Illustration: part of the Academy of Fine Arts and the Faculty of Medicine of Maastricht University. Her fascination for biomedical subject matter results that she is always alert to new developments in this field.

After graduation Maartje Kunen worked at the “Vrije Universiteit” in Amsterdam as a medical illustrator from 2003 until 2008. In addition, she also worked as a freelance Medical & Scientific visualizer. From 2008 until now she works as a full time Medical & Scientific visualizer in her own company. The studio is located in Arnhem, the Netherlands.

Maartje Kunen is a member of the Professional Association of Dutch Designers: BNO and the Association Européenne des Illustrateurs Médicaux et Scientifiques: AEIMS

infographic | An infographic is an informative depiction with a combination of text and images. This goes beyond the legend added to an anatomical image. Especially in complex information on biomedical subjects is the use of an infographic a good method. In recent years, the infographic is very popular in both print and digital publications. The viewer is given information in an attractive way, but also in an overview. The ability to create multiple versions for different platforms: desktop, tablet and smartphone, communication is always optimal. Not everyone has the time and inclination to read chunks of text, certainly not on a digital platform. The reader sooner selects a visually attractive post and not unimportant: it is to be shared with one click via the web. So you can reach a broader audience this way. The infographic can serve as a header, a visual usage to spark interest in the target audience to read all of the text. The essence is clearly explained in a style appropriate to reflect the target group and shows the topic at one glance.
