Many of the complex networks that occur both in nature and in technology are built up from frequently recurring patterns of basic structural elements. These structural patterns known as motifs play a significant role in the function of the network. Visualisation is a useful tool for understanding the structure in a network. The quality of a visualisation can be significantly improved if it effectively displays these motifs. In this paper we present visualisations designed to highlight motifs detected through analysis. We argue that these visualisations designed to show functionally important subgraphs give a greater insight into the function of the network.
