Scientific illustrations by Duncan MacGruer

Engage your audience with thoughtfully designed illustration, graphics and branding

My illustration and research figures have illuminated publications and proposals, appeared on the covers of prestigious science and technology journals and contributed to the awarding of millions of dollars in research grants. Collaboration with my academic, government and industrial clients has been the key to that success - our free exchange of ideas and open minded approaches to solutions create a special satisfaction when the final work is successful.
