How to design an award-winning scientific poster

Exceptional course! The Award-Winning Scientific Poster Design course transformed my approach to presenting research. Clear and insightful content made designing impactful posters a breeze. Highly recommended!

I wanted staff and students to learn from the best how to make compelling research posters, so I bulk-purchased access to AYS'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!

Learn to draw in Illustrator: by scientists for scientists

The course was great! It gave me the opportunity to learn both basic and intermediate skills in Adobe Illustrator. 

I now have the confidence to create my own drawings from scratch, which will elevate the science communication aspects of my work to the next level!

Kyle Brewer

The University of South Australia

Great course!
Very good and comprehensive introduction to Illustrator, showing a variety of tools and then applying them during exercises. The course is well-structured and very engaging. Would recommend!

Alexandra Mayette

James Cook University

Miguel has such a gentle and clearly spoken way of teaching. He makes great use of prompts and popups to visually help you navigate Adobe Illustrator, and gives great demonstrations for real-world applications to make artwork for posters, presentations and graphical abstracts.

Adrian Abdo

The University of Adelaide

This course was easy to follow and perfect for beginners and intermediate Adobe users. The initial tutorials help beginners to quickly gain the skillset necessary for intermediate activities. Tutorials are relevant for the types of schematics people in science will create for presentations, posters, and publications.

Science communication workshops

I was expecting a 4-hour workshop starting at 5 AM to be tough to get through, but time has flown by, and I feel like I have lots of tools I can apply to my work going forward. Thank you Tullio.

Samantha Lees

Marine Stewardship Council

I submitted my first ever poster at a technical conference and not only received many compliments, but also won two poster prizes!

I just wanted to say thank you for your help, and I am sure that I will continue to make good use of all the information for many years to come. 

Eleanor Bilogrevic

Australian Wine Research Institute

This training provided practical insights and was a great mixture of simple yet effective. The facilitator (Tullio) was both easy to communicate with in the lead up but also knowledgeable, engaging and made the learning process enjoyable. This training was successful in equipping participants with the knowledge and skills to create impactful posters and distil complex ideas.
