Don’t let your work go unnoticed and unappreciated by important audiences!
With 15 years of experience working in science communications, a Master and Bachelor of Science and a degree in design art, I have the knowledge and skills to help you showcase the importance of your work to diverse audiences.
Using effective communication, more people can learn and benefit from your work, and you can better inform and influence society.
Does your lab or group have a professional-looking website and logo, as well as consistent and professional branding? I offer logo design, illustration, branding expertise, web design, copywriting and translation.
Do you need an article in lay language about your research? I love to interview scientists about their passion, and write up compelling stories about why their work is important for society. Do you have a blog or need an article written for a trade publication or magazine? I can research primary literature and write an informative and concise article about just about anything you throw at me. Read some writing samples here.
Do you offer your materials in both English and French? If you’re in Canada you should! 21% of our population speaks French, plus you will be reaching people in all French-speaking parts of the world. I’m fluent in French and English and can translate your materials so that your work has an even greater impact.
Do you have a communications strategy for your outreach efforts? How are you tracking the impact of your work? Drawing out a concrete plan and tracking performance helps ensure you stay on target and on time to reach your goals.
Are you reaching people outside your discipline? Do you offer educational materials, tools and resources for the general public? Are they well-written, attractive, concise and understandable? I can write and design attractive brochures, posters, postcards, infographics, banners, etc, so more people can understand and benefit from your work.
Is the scientific paper you are submitting concise, clear and free of grammatical mistakes so that there is more chance it gets published? I can review your paper so that it is immaculate before being sent to the editor. I can also create your figures so you showcase your data in its best light.
Do you want a sleek and striking scientific poster and/or PowerPoint presentation for your next conference? Need a graphical abstract? I can help you visually represent your research so that your work stands out in its clarity and professionalism.
Do you need well-organized and engaging content, as well as an attractive design for your next big report? Yes, I do both!
Are you showing policy-makers how your work helps society overcome important challenges while also providing economic benefits? Demonstrate to policy-makers that investing in your field of research can benefit society and help your government reach its objectives.
Are you hosting an event, workshop or conference? You’ll need a conference booklet, evaluation sheets, promotional material, posters, signage, brochures and branded items (tote bags, pens, notebooks, t-shirts, etc.). I will make sure your participants have access to all the important information, that your branding is consistent and that all materials arrive on time for your meeting.
