If you are need an illustrated cover image or other specialized images for a journal article, the College of Science has set up Ella Maru Studio as an approved vendor in the Clemson buyWays procurement system.

According to its website, Ella Maru Studio combines Ph.D.-level scientific knowledge with professional art design to produce scientific images and animations for articles, proposals and books. Its images have been featured on more than 100 covers of high-impact scientific magazines. Ella Maru Studio is an option that has been recommended by others. It is just one of many options in the marketplace, however, and researchers remain free, of course, to use any vendor they choose.

Each project is different, but cover illustrations often range from $750 to $1,000-plus, depending on complexity and time restraints. Ella Maru Studio is an independent company with no financial ties to Clemson University. Please note that the image on this webpage is a generic example of an illustration, and was not created by Ella Maru Studio.
