…Every experience with SayoStudio has been amazing. They always have fantastic ideas of what to illustrate for our work. This really helps and takes the burden off of me since sometimes I am not even sure where to start…

We did a review session with our team - and everyone loved the illustration!!! There is so much richness of detail when you zoom in. We are your biggest fans. THANK YOU so much for getting us this last mile. I'm really excited to see this out there.

What makes you a unicorn is that you have a biology background and you’re a fantastic artist. Your background in science makes you fundamentally different. You’re among the best in the country at what you do, and on a consistent basis, you deliver what you promise. I know I can rely on you even when wacky sh*** happens (because in life, it always does).

As promised, your anchor images have been NSF's way in on this story that presented many challenges to stand out in the mix. Reporters agreed to cover specifically after I sent the image (Sky&Telescope, Forbes)!

Your First Stars image, which continues to get top billing in Google search, is now on the side of a bus. Images are critical to what we do, thanks for giving us such impact!

Investors just aren't getting it. [Your illustration is] critical to move the needle on funding.

You ask questions that other illustrators and designers would never think to ask. I listen to you, and you ask questions of researchers that make me think, "this is why we pay her"

Our process:

At SayoStudio, we focus on the hard work that should come before pencils hit the paper: 

With our scientific backgrounds, we ask the right questions to clarify your vision and create truly unique bold illustrations. We use your description and references to guide further research. 

From there we create sketches that capture the key concepts and details to confirm that we’re on the same page. Using a suite of digital software we will then bring your vision to life. Your files are promptly delivered to your client showcase with the specifications you need, whether it be for print, web, or other uses.

Throughout this process, we are here to answer questions if you’re new to working with professional designers, or help bridge the gap between scientists and your larger communication and marketing team. Looking forward to working with you!

We look forward to meeting!
