We created a piece of art for Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory who do very clever things with semiconductor physics, amongst other interests. We produced this “glamorous” illustration of a solid-state single electron transistor, showing the probably location of the electron cloud as a glowing region. We used reference electron micrographs and drawings to build an accurate [...]
We created a piece of art for Sekisui Diagnostics who produce biological testing kits. This kit is for haemoglobin. We used structural data on the haemoglobin molecule, and split it into the separate chains and haeme groups that make up haemoglobin, r...
Our latest animation for Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, showing their Lunar Pathfinder mission, which aims to deliver a suite of cubesats to lunar orbit, and act as a communications hub back to the Earth. It is a pathfinder mission, testing technology for a more comprehensive lunar communications network, enabling future missions.More details and a [...]
We updated the animation for Surrey Space Centre to show the launch and deployment sections, featuring a SpaceX Falcon9/Dragon capsule, and deployment from the International Space Station, via the Japanese module. The satellite is currently built and awaiting launch. It puts into context the issue of space junk, and shows how Surrey Space Centre, in [...]
We created a piece of art for Sekisui Diagnostics who produce biological testing kits. This kit is for syphillis, which is caused by a bacterium called Treponema pallidum. We used reference electron micrographs to build accurate replicas, and disperse...
We created a piece of art for Pint of Science which is an international organisation which brings together detailed science talks on a wide range of cutting-edge research, in an informal pub setting, with plenty of beer. We used data from the Protein Data Bank to build an illustration showing the battle between a tumour and [...]
Part of a series of illustrations created for UC San Francisco to illustrate their work on the role of neurons in regulating thirst. The images play on the themes of neurons, brains and water.
We created this animation for Surrey Space Centre, who built the Alsat nano cubesat which was successfully launched on 26th September 2016. It is a testbed for some novel technologies, which are highlighted in the animation.More detail on the missio...
We were hired by BBC Earth to produce a series of three animations to accompany a longform article on the Origins of Life. As this was quite a technical article, the videos were to provide some visual relief, explaining some of the complex concepts more clearly. These focused on:DNA, and how it assembles [...]
We produced this illustration of a small two-stage rocket, a Nanosat Launch Vehicle (NLV) for the British Interplanetary Society (BIS). It’s aim is to deliver small payloads to orbit, and has an approximate height of 9m, and is fuelled by liquid oxygen (LOX) and Refined Petroleum 1 (RP-1), a type of kerosene. It [...]
We created this animation for Surrey Space Centre, who are one of 22 projects at the Royal Society’s Summer Exhibition, which features exhibits, talks and activites for all ages. It puts into context the issue of space junk, and shows how Surrey Space Centre, in collaboration with others in the space sector, are building missions to [...]
We’ve just updated our space demo reel on the main page to include our most recent work from the year or so. Watch it in full HD! Our 2016 Space showreel:You can still see our other showreels here: Engineering showreel 2012 Science showreel 2012
We were recently hired to produce a series of animation clips for Science Photo Library, showing some of the complex nuclear fusion reactions that occur in the Sun, including the CNO cycle at the end. Here is a selection of our favourites!Science Photo Library provides licensing of striking specialist science imagery, with more than [...]
A series of two illustrations and an infographic created for Airbus Defence & Space to visualise their Biomass satellite, which will measure forest and vegatation in 3D over the entire globe, for the evaluation of biomass and tracking of its change over time.Read more about the project on the Airbus Biomass press release and BBC [...]
Our latest animation for Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, showing their novel GMP-A satellite platform, which can hide away inside a launch adaptor ring, unfurling into a fully functioning geostationary communications satellite.
