Graphic Design, Web Development,
Illustration & Photography
Working as the in-house creative for this commercial enzyme company in Tromso, Norway has been a real delight and an eye opener. My responsibilities included graphic design, front-end development, photography, illustration, plus much, much more. ArcticZymes leverage their access to the marine Arctic to identify novel cold-adapted enzymes for use in molecular research, diagnostics, and manufacturing.
When it came to creating the colour palette for ArcticZymes’ new style guide, I drew a great deal of inspiration from the environment surrounding us. This paired particularly nicely with my passion for landscape photography from around the region.
While talking with our customers, we learned that they would visit our website on their mobile device while working in the lab. With this in mind it became imperative that not only did our website function well on mobile devices, but the information for our products was quickly and easily accessible.
Occasionally there was a need for something a little more experimental and fun, this is science after all! Typically the illustrations needed to explain complex workflows in a simplistic manner, involving few words. This could get tricky, but working alongside the scientists we would get the results we were after.
While the enzymes that ArcticZymes manufacture are extremely small, there is still a need to show them off on the big stage. Using imagery from around the Nordic region has really helped ArcticZymes stand out in the crowd.
