Long formats

We know that certain research projects absolutely must have a long format document to outline the nitty-gritty details of the research. But just because it’s long, it doesn’t mean it can’t also be visually appealing, engaging and polished. We offer two main options for long format documents, static and interactive. See more details below.

We take long research reports and polish them with a clean and professional design. Supporting visuals can break up the text and engage the reader. Your report can be long and visually appealing at the same time.

Interactive report

Short formats

Short formats for research communication are our bread and butter. Our first ever product for a client was an infographic, and we have since developed a range of six short formats that can tell the story of your research in unique ways. It all depends on your goals and your audience. Each short format has its own features, get in touch if you need support making a decision.

Video / Animation

Videos and animations are a popular choice to tell the story of your research in a dynamic format. People connect with people and stories. A short video or animation can be the perfect solution to get your message across to your audience.

Presentation

Researchers are often invited to give a presentation of their findings to their target audience. You want your presentation to be part of the same visual story as your short or long format document, so this additional service is a natural fit for many researchers.

Webpage

If you need to create a webpage for your research project, that is part of your organisation’s web infrastructure, we can help you build the HTML for it and you can hand that to the web team to build.

Bilingual (translation)

Only 15.14% of the world speaks English (according to wiki). Make your research findings more accessible by creating versions of your documents in different languages. We can work with the translation you provide, or we can offer a translation service.

Social media

If you or your project have an active online presence, you may wish to have social media assets to help you disseminate your research in bite-size formats. We select key parts from your short or long documents and create assets to help spread your work far and wide.

Communications plan

Once you have your accessible and visual documents, we can help you think through how to disseminate them. We can develop a communications plan with clear objectives and goals, to help you maximise your reach and impact.

Project branding

Most projects have a brand that aligns with their institution. But some projects involving collaborations between multiple organisations require extra support and guidance to develop a brand that truly reflects their mission and goals. We can help.
