Biotech Web Design

We specialise in building websites within the biotech, life sciences, and pharmaceutical sectors.


Decoding Biotech Web Design

Biotech web design refers to the process of designing and developing websites specifically tailored for biotech, life sciences, and pharmaceutical companies. This can be a complex task as it involves effectively communicating scientific information, meeting regulatory requirements, focusing on security and mobile optimisation, all while providing ideal user experience.

By understanding these key elements, businesses in the biotech sector can make informed decisions and collaborate with web design professionals who own the necessary expertise to create impactful and tailored digital solutions.

Let’s explore the main aspects of biotech web design and how it addresses the specific needs of the industry.

Communicating Complex Scientific Information

Effective communication of complex scientific concepts is a vital aspect of biotech web design.  Biotech companies often work with intricate scientific concepts and information that can be challenging for the general public. Web designers must be able to simplify complicated scientific information and present it in a clear and concise manner. They use various tools such as interactive graphics and animations to engage users and help them understand complex concepts.

Regulatory Compliance

Biotech web design must also follow industry regulations and standards. This includes ensuring compliance with specific requirements like HIPAA for healthcare-related information. Web designers invest significant time and effort to ensure that the website’s content and functionality align with the regulations and standards of the industry.

Security Measures

Security is a top concern in the biotech industry due to the sensitive and confidential nature of the information involved. To prevent data breaches and cyber-attacks, designers use strong security measures such as secure communication protocols, password-protected pages, and other security features to safeguard sensitive data.

Mobile Optimisation

With the increasing use of mobile devices, optimising biotech websites for mobile platforms is crucial. As the use of mobile devices continues to rise, there is a growing demand for the websites that adjust to a wide variety of screen sizes and resolutions. This ensures that users can access and navigate the website effortlessly, regardless of the device they are using. Designers ensure that the website’s design is responsive and adaptable, allowing users to seamlessly access and navigate the website on different screen sizes and resolutions.

User Experience Challenges

Creating an optimal user experience presents particular challenges in biotech web design. The necessity to convey complex information while maintaining a user-friendly and intuitive interface requires careful consideration. Designers strive to reach a balance between presenting scientific content and offering a clean, modern design consistent with the company’s branding.


In summary, biotech web design involves effectively communicating complex scientific information, adhering to regulatory compliance, implementing robust security measures, optimizing for mobile devices, and addressing user experience challenges. By addressing these complexities, web designers can create engaging and impactful websites for biotech companies.

A big thank you to Sophie, Daniel C. and Rob for ensuring we went live ahead of time with a website that is exactly what I hoped we might achieve when we first started.

In fact, if I’m honest it is better than I hoped for and something everyone in the company is proud of and delighted to see as our shop window.

It has been a pleasure working with you all and I know we will have further projects we can work on together in the future.

First of all, I’d like to highlight the fact that our project came with tight constraints, Douglass Digital accepted this and delivered a great website. We had contacted other agencies, but Douglass Digital were the ones who took that constraint in their stride and modified their planning to accommodate for it. It should not be a regular situation, but that was already a very positive sign of dedication to the project from them.

From the brief we provided, they came up with interesting ideas and original designs, the best of which made it to the final cut and was appreciated by all our internal stakeholders. Once built, the final website was faithful to the previously agreed-upon design, functionalities are working well and glitch-free. As with any project, you want to make sure you have a thorough QA/QC process, and Douglass Digital were very responsive in fixing minor issues or even small changes in design we decided at the last-minute when looking at the final product.

The overall collaboration was direct, quick and efficient, with clear expectations and deliverables from both sides, whether through messages and meetings. Training videos also made sure we felt like we were in control of the final website and that we have the ability to modify content by ourselves in the future, and that the website is not just a black box with no insights for us. Moreover, all of the team members are very nice to talk to and very receptive to discussions and brainstorming.We are currently working with them on another web project. 5 stars all the way!!!
