A most cooperative, friendly and professional company


"I am a Senior Visiting Fellow at the University of Surrey and I have known and collaborated with ODI since 1998 in my position as author of two textbooks. The artwork involves the drawing of very detailed and complex illustrations involving chemical structures and how they are organized in metabolic pathways. ODI have provided exceptional support and cooperation in this work. Their invaluable support is acknowledged in the preliminary pages of the book. At all times I have found ODI a most cooperative, friendly and professional company and I strongly recommend them to you."

Skilled and experienced staff


"Over the past 10 years I have worked as Project Manager on a number of English Language Teaching series for overseas publishers, which have been designed and produced by ODI. Their studio employs a range of skilled and experienced staff who are used to delivering high quality work to agreed budgets and schedules. I can truly say that without their input, some of my projects wouldn't have achieved the quality they did. I have no hesitation in recommending them."
