Graphic Design for Journal Articles

As you may or may not know, I have been known to dabble in creative arts beyond writing; including painting and digital art. This has come in handy, especially for designing images for scientific journal articles. I’ve decided to start offering those services [for a modest fee]. If you think I might be able to help you, get in touch! Just email me at

How it Works:

  • You send me the image requirements (size, resolution, etc.), as well as the journal name so that I can see the style that they tend to prefer.
  • You will also need to send me a lay-description of your work, and any image ideas you have or would like to see.
  • If I think it’s something I can do, I will send you a very preliminary draft along with an invoice.
  • Once you’ve paid the invoice, I’ll get to work on making a full render to the specified parameters.
  • You’ll get the opportunity to request small changes to the final design.

How much does it cost?

  • My prices vary depending on the complexity and detail of the image you’re looking for. In general my starting price for a simple schematic is $100-$500 (AUD) and for a cover image is $1000-$2000 (AUD)
  • Get in touch and we can discuss.

We all know how fickle journals can be, so I’m afraid I can’t guarantee that cover images will be selected and I can’t offer any refunds if your image is not selected. However, you are more than welcome to use the image for other purpose like presentations, posters, or project advertising.
