Hi, I’m Hannah Newey, a Medical and Scientific Illustrator.
My mission is to bring science to life and create visuals that help advance scientific accessibility, literacy and education. I am passionate about creating scientifically accurate, visually appealing content, and committed to working closely with my clients to ensure that they are completely satisfied with the final product.
With professional training in Medical Art, Medicine, Healthcare PR and Medical Education, I am skilled in creating accurate visual content accompanied by top-quality design and layout. I make sure all my content is scientifically accurate, based on thorough research and reputable studies, yet still human-friendly. Whatever the project, my goal is the same: to communicate key messages clearly and effectively to the targeted audience.
Please see my LinkedIn profile for more detailed information about my educational and professional history.
Interact with the timeline below for a quick summary of my journey to Medical and Scientific Illustration. I hope you enjoy!
MSc Medical Art (Distinction), University of Dundee, 2016 – 2018
BSc Medical Science, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, 2009 – 2013
I received this award for my “I HEART ANATOMY” interactive website, which is presented annually to the art/graphics entry that shows innovation and extra creativity in the approach to the subject that lifts it above the rest of the entries. This resource has now been incorporated into the University of Dundee’s medical and anatomy teaching, with over twenty 3D-printed copies of the heart made to accompany the cadavers for dissection teaching, use of the materials in lectures and elearning revision, and an upcoming research study based on the resource. You can see find out more about this project here.
I received this award for my contribution to the exhibition: a collage of flowers in the form of a child’s lungs over a graphite-drawn trachea and primary bronchi. Over the month-long show, which explored recent advances in children’s asthma, allergies and personalised medicine, the flowers dried, browned and desiccated, demonstrating how pollen affects asthma and gradually damages the lungs.
I am currently a member of the Institute of Medical Illustrators, and affiliated with the University of Dundee Graduates' Association and the Brighton and Sussex Medical School Alumni Association.
