Mission & Values

Truthfulness, clarity, craftsmanship, empathy.


Our illustration capabilities are broad due to the multimedia, technical, and academic backgrounds we draw upon. We focus first on identifying your unique project needs, then utilize strong design and careful use of color, value, and line to convey your message. Built-in checkpoints along the way allow us to integrate your feedback and ensure you receive the perfect solution to your visual problem.

Feel free to contact us with questions at info@royillustration.com.


Animation is often the best way to quickly and clearly communicate an idea, and to built excitement or interest among your audience. We are experienced at 2D and 3D animation, and are also able to work with you to integrate animation with video footage.

Feel free to contact us with questions at info@royillustration.com.


3D printing is a powerful way to communicate an idea in a classroom, in a legal setting, or anywhere you might be trying to convey 3D information with others in person. It can also be a fun and memorable way to attract interest at tech shows and conferences.

We are able to work with you to develop your own 3D prints from imaging data, or to develop 3D models from the ground up based on your needs.

Feel free to contact us with questions at info@royillustration.com.


We are seasoned 3D modelers and are skilled at developing 3D models for various didactic purposes including teaching on the web.

Every design project poses a unique set of exciting challenges that requires a keen eye and a strong sense of design, as well as a clear understanding of the market and audience.

We love working on branding and design ranging from logos to web design. While our specialty is scientific and medical visualization, we love working with clients from diverse backgrounds. We bring a unique freshness and clarity of vision you won’t find with other firms.
