Vernacular prides itself on our content accuracy. Working with a Board Certified Medical Illustrator means increased efficiency and a deepened understanding of the material.


Creative Designs

The medical and scientific worlds aren’t dull, so neither should the images that represent it! We are influenced by contemporary design trends and ensure our images never look dated.


Reliable Experience

We have years of experience producing images and animations for a broad range of clients. We are confident working under tight deadlines as well as undertaking long-term projects.

Hello! My name is Stefanie—I’m the founder and creative lead at Vernacular Studios. I’m a board certified medical illustrator and I specialize in visualizing unseen worlds. I’m excited about the various ways that design influences our lives and how design can render legible seemingly inaccessible information.

I have a BSc from the University of British Columbia in Integrated Sciences with a minor in Visual Arts and an MSc in Medical Art from the University of Dundee.

If you have a project in mind, or would like to hear more about my services please feel free to get in touch!
