Hélène Fournié's latest works, in medical & scientific illustration and graphic design

Design of a slide show to explain the working principle of their latest antiviral, Islatravir (anti-HIV).
Despite the discoveries of the last few years, often combined in the form of triple therapy, new strains resistant to nucleoside inhibitors (NRTI) are appearing.

The BRGM (National Geological Survey) has asked Hélène Fournié to communicate on the phenomena of rising water tables in urban areas, phenomena that are little known but often problematic. The illustration is mainly aimed at local authorities and structures involved in land management, but will undoubtedly find an important audience among individuals and other actors.

The Institut Génétique & Développement de Rennes (IGDR UMR 6290 CNRS - UR1) is a joint research unit supported by the CNRS and the University of Rennes 1. In January 2022, the TIPs (Tubulin and Interacting Proteins) team changed its name to MiToS (*M*icrotubules, from *T*ubulin to *S*pindles), and asked Hélène Fournié to design its logo.  This new name covers a wide range of research topics, from the structure of the MT assembled in vitro and observed at the tubulin scale by cryo-EM, to the architecture of the mitotic spindle, assembled in xenopus oocyte extracts


Thank you
for your confidence


  • Timothée Dupaigne, regional hydrogeologist at BRGM Ile de France.

    "The quality of Hélène's illustration reflects her ability to immerse herself in the subject and to find the right balance between readability and precision of scientific information. She also knew how to preserve the aesthetics despite the complexity of the elements to represent. The collaboration was made efficient thanks to fluid exchanges, notably because of her reactivity and her ability to listen. Hélène Fournié is an excellent ally for the BRGM!".

  • Cyrille Doumecq - Technical Sales Manager - Serdex, an affiliate of SEPPIC Group

    Quick and efficient, Helene helps me to create the graphic universe of my communication tools.

  • Prof. Catherine Belzung, INSERM 930 & Department of Neurosciences

    I have called upon Helene Fournie on numerous occasions for illustrations for magazine articles on the brain, animal behaviour or translational research. She provides illustrations of an exceptional aesthetic quality, very clear, much appreciated by the reviewers of my articles and by the readers. These illustrations are often used by others. In addition, it is very well organised, responds quickly, easily understands the nature of the request, takes our feedback into account, never loses patience, is very efficient and also very honest. I recommend her most enthusiastically. Call her: you will never be disappointed and will always be delighted!

  • Patrick Gardet, technical warden - National Nature Reserve of the Hauts de Chartreuse

    Hélène Fournié has enabled the Natural Reserve of the  Hauts de Chartreuse to produce a series of illustrations that are demanding from a naturalistic point of view and capable of capturing the curiosity of young and old alike, on difficult themes (geomorphology, natural habitats...). The result is a real success and the illustrations are very well received.  A result possible thanks to Helene's artistic and technical qualities, but also her listening and flexibility around the project. A big thank you! 

  • Didier Merlin Ph.D - Distinguished University Professor, Institute for Biomedical Sciences, Georgia State University - Atlanta GA

    Helene’s strong analytic skills and scientific knowledge are complemented by her expertise in graphic art. Such a rare combination gives her the ability to deliver outstanding medical illustrations. I’ve worked with Helene for the last 10 years, and her graphics have proven to increase attractiveness, understandability, and communication power of research findings.

  • Corentin Guinault - Geodiversity Project Manager at Réserves Naturelles de France

    Hélène made our task much easier with her availability, her curiosity and her ability to listen. However, we had called on her services for a field she knew little about, geology, with high expectations in terms of rigour and pedagogy. Today, our employees are very pleased with the result and the quality of the brochure obtained.

  • Pierre-Louis Gamblin, Regional Medical Director Immunology / Virology - MSD France

    "Hélène was recommended to us by an internationally recognized French scientific expert, for her mastery of scientific graphics. The collaboration went perfectly well, with respect for the commitment, timings, and regulatory constraints, all in an atmosphere of exchange and good humor. Thank you Hélène for this collaboration and we look forward to renewing the experience. »

  • Romain Gibeaux, PhD - CNRS researcher and team leader at the Institute of Genetics and Development in Rennes

    The expansion of my team's research themes has led to its name change in 2022. On this occasion, I called upon Hélène Fournié to create a team logo reflecting the scope of our research projects from molecular to cellular. Hélène was able to quickly understand our work and to make adapted logo proposals, each one more beautiful than the other. Hélène is open to suggestions and spares no time to finalize the work in its smallest details.  Hélène is positive, strong of suggestions, efficient and reactive, it was a real pleasure to work with her
