Hi! I'm Dr Tullio Rossi, award-winning science communicator, marine biologist and graphic designer. As Founder of the science communication agency “Animate Your Science”, I help researchers tell their story to the world. 


Our engaging video animations and eye-catching graphics make science understandable for everyone, reaching millions of people around the world, thereby creating a real-life impact. 


I have been giving poster design workshops for 4 years, and I'm excited to share my best knowledge and tips with you in this online course!


"This course has given me the courage to go out and design the poster I want to present.

I'm sick of walls of text too, so I'm very excited to take the knowledge I've gained and apply it to my next poster production! Thank you, Animate Your Science."

I wanted staff and students to learn from the best how to make compelling research posters, so I bulk purchased access to Animate Your Science's online course.


The feedback from the students has been excellent and so have been their new posters. 

Every graduate student should do this training!

However, this course has really helped me on the science of creating an eye-catching poster that anyone would be happy to see."

The content of this poster design course is pitched perfectly. Tullio discusses and demonstrates software skills and techniques that will inspire your creativity if you have the interest in applying or learning them. 

A valuable course and I am looking forward to unleashing the lessons learned in my content creation.
