Hi there! Ikumi Kayama here, the Medical and scientific illustrator and the founder of Studio Kayama.
If you ever asked yourself:
…You’re in the RIGHT place.
(Ikumi Kayama at the opening reception of the Illustrators Club 16 exhibit)
I’m here to bridge the gap between you, the expert, with the people you want to connect and teach.
I believe smart researchers and physicians who want to help patients and to solve the problems of the world today MUST become excellent communicators and teachers.
Using illustrations and graphics are some of the most effective ways to communicate your ideas quickly with greater impact. In order to create such graphics, you will need to invest time and energy in studying the craft.
How can you find the time to do this while running your office/lab….while working long hours….while raising a family?
Instead of pulling graphs straight from excel, digging through hundreds of research articles, and using generic stock art from the internet…
…subscribe to Visual Communications for the Scientist Newsletter. See the power of illustration for yourself before committing for a custom illustration. You’ll get up to date tips and tricks on design and layout tips and tutorials. I’ll also give you backstage access to see some of the illustration I’m currently working on.

I love science and art, but I also love doing my own research on communication and psychology and turning them into quick lessons that applies to everyone wanting to be a better communicator of science.
