In our ongoing efforts to maximize impact, Creative is now focusing on making significant, systematic expansions rather than addressing piecemeal requests. This shift allows us to deliver more comprehensive and impactful resources, ensuring broader and more effective support for your research needs. Thank you for your understanding and continued trust in us as we strive to make a bigger impact together.


Icon requests are divided into three categories: simple, intermediate, and complex. For more information on how icons are sorted into these categories, head to this article.

Note: all icons requested through the custom icon request form are added to our public library by default for all BioRender users to access and use in their illustrations.
