Infographics and Graphical abstracts

Graphical abstracts help convey the core information of a research paper through easily digestible visuals. In most cases, they are single images that capture a paper’s content concisely and vividly, providing the visual equivalent of a textual abstract.

Graphical abstracts have found several uses in scientific publications, journal articles, scholarly papers, research, reviews, product guides, and other documents delivering knowledge.

Similar to graphical abstracts, infographics utilize our ability to recognize trends and patterns visually to make sophisticated content easier to understand. Infographics improve our perception of data with visuals designed to be easily absorbed by our minds.

We can comprehend visualized information faster as there is no need to first translate words. For instance, a graphical schematic of a subway explains how to get to any station without any detailed textual description.

What industries Need Infographics and Graphical abstracts?

Infographics and graphical abstracts can be made from several types of graphical visuals, all of which enhance the delivery of knowledge-intensive information regardless of industry. For example, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, medical science and educational institutions, clinical care providers, and many other scientifically-oriented entities and organizations utilize graphical visuals for various knowledge-delivery purposes, from reporting to training.

Explanatory scientific illustrations

Scientific illustrations facilitate the communication of complex data by representing sophisticated concepts and ideas through pictures. We perceive 80% of information about the world through our eyes, which process visualized data much faster than text. Few other things are more natural for people than viewing visuals.

While almost everything we know can be described in words, text is still subject to interpretation. Explanatory illustrations help us avoid such misinterpretations.

Graphical abstracts for scientific publications

Scientists face a challenge when their concepts, findings, and ideas need to be explained to colleagues or the general public. The more specific the subject, the more detailed an explanation is required. How can this complex information be compressed to make an abstract brief but informative? Graphical abstracts are the ideal solution to this problem.

One simple visual can summarize several pages of text. The clue is in how humans think: images are the roots of our thoughts, not words. Moreover, in addition to helping us easily grasp any idea, visuals are less vulnerable to misinterpretation. A skillfully created graphical abstract can deliver the main idea behind a scientific publication in a matter of seconds.

Highly informative scientific infographics

Infographics simplify complicated subjects by leveraging our abilities to recognize and absorb visual patterns and structures, allowing us to stay passive when perceiving information.

Graphic designers stretch the imagination when transforming textual data into images ultimately saving our time and mental effort with pictures full of meaning. Few other methods of data representation are as impactful as infographics.

Educational posters and visuals for training

Different people have different understandings of the same subject. Bringing a group of people to a common understanding is a matter of educational harmonization, which is an arduous task unless you use engaging visuals.

Posters stimulate creative thinking and thus help them grasp any topic faster and more profoundly. Moreover, training visuals hold our attention more effectively than textual or voice messages. In fact, any learning material should combine visuals with other information representations to be effective.

Benefits of Nanobot Medical’s Infographics and Graphical Abstracts Service

Many scientific presentations are difficult to understand due to the excessively complex slides. For example, they may be overloaded with data, poorly structured, or overly wordy. This is an issue especially relevant to medical publications. However, preparing impactful infographics and understandable graphical abstracts require advanced design skills and an understanding of medical subjects.

Our vast hands-on experience processing complex medical information helps us avoid the typical mistakes in developing scientific presentations. Our visual designers maintain a perfect balance between an image’s information content and its visual impact. Having worked on a wide range of medical publications, we have learned which designs works and which don’t. Besides, our years of practice creating medical graphics have provided us with rich feedback from various audiences that has taught us to make infographics and graphical abstracts visually engaging with concise and precise data in every picture.

Besides, years of practice in creating graphics for medicine provide us with rich feedback from various audiences. Hence, we know how to make infographics and graphical abstracts visually engaging with concise and precise data in every picture.

Nobody likes long, heavily detailed presentations, and thus lots of important information is easily missed. Deck slides also commonly lack visuals and consistency of delivery, whereas a bit of storytelling or at least a logical flow of information would do just right.

An approach where you throw in a bunch of data from random sources and try your best to explain it all to a particular audience won’t ever work. Although we are not recreating the way to use slide decks from scratch, we can turn the deck slides you already have into aesthetically appealing, engaging, and consistent pieces of the story.

Nanobot Medical’s Infographics and Graphical Abstracts Workflow

As with any other type of scientific visual, creating infographics and graphical abstracts involve a particular sequence of steps. This sequence is reflected in our design pipeline, which typically comprises the following:

// Questionnaire

Your paper’s story is essential in giving us a clear vision of what should be created based on your research. The questionnaire helps ignite our visual imagination and conceptualize the final graphical product.


// Concept/storyboard

A concept and a storyboard express how we have grasped your idea. They deliver a transitional design of your visuals that can be discussed and tweaked, ultimately enabling a creative team and customer to agree on the basic options and features of the visual being produced.

// Illustration/video production

This is when our creators work with full force. Nothing should be able to do its visual magic if a fresh idea comes to your mind after a concept is approved and seems compulsory for the final visuals. Our communication managers keep clients informed about the progress over the entire pipeline.


// Revision/final approval

When visuals are finalized in terms of both design and content, the customer should revise the final version to approve. We appreciate your opinion and leave the door to possible corrections open until you are delighted with our service.
