"As a startup medical device company, we were looking for a design team to help us bring to life the patient engagement material we had in mind. The Kryski Biomedia team, led by Diana Kryski, offers unparalleled creative services. The design elements of the cardiovascular medical illustrations we required were – at times – specific and unique to render, and Diana and the team not only created our vision but provided guidance and insight throughout the design process, leaving us with a finished product better than we had imagined. The Kryski Biomedia designs most certainly have had a lasting impact on our customers and our company!"

"Diana has been a fantastic collaborator since 2008, from which time we have put together two academic medical texts reaching an international audience of 10,000’s of individuals. Diana has continued to demonstrate a vision, understanding, and context for her role as illustrator that is only paralleled by her artistic talent. With unsurpassed attention to detail, medical accuracy, and not the least of all exquisite overall composition, Diana is a truly gifted artist. When you are able to produce ‘coffee table’ grade books with medical subject matter, clearly the artist excels beyond the subject. For Diana’s vision, artistry, and professionalism, there is never another thought about who my illustrative collaborator shall be."

"I felt very comfortable working with Diana. Even with my limited English language skills (I am Spanish-speaking), every conversation was short and easy. Diana understands perfectly the surgical ideas and even improves their presentation with her own suggestions. I presented my work at the Colombian Plastic Surgery Society annual meeting in Cartagena, and my colleagues were impressed with the quality of the illustrations. I was awarded first place, and the article will be published in several worldwide journals. I feel that her professionalism and beautiful art were an important support to me; I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her."

"Can't think of a better design partner to bring your vision to life. Diana grasped what we were trying to achieve and was a pleasure to work with."
Head of Marketing,
"Diana has been a wonderful partner to work with across multiple projects. She is communicative, talented, and produces high quality work."
"Diana was highly recommended to us in 2013 when we were looking for a series of high quality illustrations for a patient decision support tool. We have been working with her exclusively since that time. She is very professional and easy for busy surgeons to work with. She is able to understand complex medical conditions or abstract procedures with very little direction and always delivers high quality illustrations, sometimes within very short time lines. I am always 100% pleased with the result."
Toni Zhong, MD, MHS, FRCS(C)

"Our experience working with Diana has been exceptional. Above and beyond her professional talents as a medical illustrator, Diana is pleasant, communicates very well and clearly follows direction while offering her insights to help improve any project we did with her. I would highly recommend her services to anyone and we will continue to be including her as a part of our team."
