If you work in medical affairs, you know that legal, medical, and regulatory review is crucial for the materials your team uses, whether internally, in the field, or at medical congress booths. But what about the agencies you partner with? Do they understand your company’s review process? Read more
Working in medical affairs in pharma, you probably have a baseline expectation that your agency partner will thoroughly proofread and run quality control (QC) on the materials they create for you. After all, you want clean copy, stylistic consistency, and easy readability in your slide decks, videos, infographics, and eLearning modules. Read more
As a visual storytelling agency, we often face the question of cost when we receive a project briefing and create a proposal. It’s an understandable question. But the answer can vary greatly. In many cases, we first need to provide a price range, which naturally leads clients to wonder, “what do I get for the lower end, and what do I get for the higher end?” Read more
When you work with an agency on slide decks, illustrations, infographics, print materials, or videos, you probably want to use these assets for at least a few years and have them adapted for different markets or leverage them for other materials. That requires having what many people call “open files” or “source files.”
Training sessions are an essential aspect of any medical affairs team in a pharmaceutical or biotech company. They provide an opportunity for medical affairs professionals to learn about the latest developments, industry best practices, and new product launches. But face-to-face or online training sessions have some limitations. The most obvious: only those who participate on the day of the training session get to access the content. This means that all those who could not participate in the session, as well as new medical affairs professionals who join later, miss out on the valuable information. Read more
Animated videos run in almost every pharma congress booth, from 3D MoA and MoD videos, to 2D clinical study explainer videos. An effective congress booth video should first draw people to your booth. But keeping them there takes more than “just” eye-catching visuals.

Working in pharma, you use visual aids every day to talk about the latest developments in medical science.

Imagine going to a dance class and not knowing anyone. You feel completely out of place. You’re struggling to learn the steps, keep up with the music, and avoid collisions with other dancers. Everyone else in the room knows each other already. They are all moving in unison while you are still trying to figure out what to do with your feet. This is how many new employees feel when they join a company.
Humor in scientific communication? Like bad knock-knock jokes about tyrosine kinases? You might think humor undermines scientific credibility. Or that it’s inappropriate in communication about serious medical conditions. But interestingly, science as well as experience with hundreds of films, slide decks, and activities tell us otherwise.
