/ OLÁ! I'M DIOGO
I want to change the way researchers and doctors communicate visually.
I'm a Lisbon-based medical illustrator, with a background in veterinary medicine.
Having worked as a veterinarian & researcher, I realised how poor the investment in visual scientific materials still is.
Science is about communicating our findings, so we need to start speaking louder and better. My scientific background is essential to understand the topics & translate ideas efficiently, while developing new and original figures.
