Our story

Your research is brilliant and novel. I’m sure of it. You might even be a pioneer in your field. But ask yourself honestly, is it communicated well enough to make a difference in the world?


My name is Tullio Rossi, and I founded Animate Your Science on my quest to make a positive impact on society through science.


During my Ph.D., I found that my peer-reviewed paper alone wasn’t cutting it. If I wanted to reach my peers, let alone the general public, I needed to communicate my findings in a fun and imaginative way.


This realization changed everything and inspired me to create “Lost at Sea,” an award-winning video that reached the hearts and minds of thousands of people globally.


The success of this first video blew my mind. And I got to thinking, maybe other scientists are lost at sea, so to speak. Maybe others want to reach the masses with their research, but just don’t know where to start.


This was the day Animate Your Science was born.

About: Our Story

Why we do it

What we really want to do is bring science into society. That’s the true value of this company and the reason we believe in it.

We love science but we believe that, if not communicated properly, science is of limited use to society.​


As scientists, it’s our privilege and duty to unearth these revelations and package them in a way that appeals to our peers as well as the general public.

Whether this is a video abstract, a custom animation or a graphical abstract, we are here to help you.

Our Mission - What we do every day

We empower scientists to change the world by communicating in an effective and accessible way.

Our Vision - What we are striving for

We will be regarded as the global leader in science communication.
