Updated August 2023:
We are no longer accepting new schema design or consultation requests.

Please contact Catie Newsom-Stewart (c.newsom-stewart@wustl.edu) and Abby Kimball (abigail.kimball@wustl.edu) to inquire about alternative resources for your project.

The InPrint Schema Design Team helps you illustrate your scientific ideas by creating or consulting with you on the design of high-quality schema.

Our schema designers have experience creating high-quality vector graphics to illustrate your scientific ideas (for examples, see our portfolio page). Our team offers two services to help you create the design you envision:

  1. Schema Design Consultation
  2. Complete Schema Design

Our consultation service is for those who would like to do most of the figure design and editing themselves but are looking for guidance, tips, or ideas. Our complete schema design service is for those who wish to have one of our skilled designers create and edit your figure for you. You can learn more about both of these services below.

Regardless of the service you choose, the general process is similar. You’ll meet with us, describe what you’re looking for, work with us to plan, design or edit your figure, and ultimately obtain the figure that you envisioned.

About Our Schema Design Services

  Short-term service (only 1-2 hours total)

  You do most of the work

Complete Schema Design

Longer-term service (can vary, but usually lasts about 4 weeks)

  Designers do most of the work

  Designers use a style you request

  You do not need to learn about graphic design, conceptualization of a figure layout, or design software

  Your figure will be edited and completed within the time frame you and your designers agree to

  You give feedback to your designers who then use this feedback to make edits
