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.

Vivid land­scapes

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.

Responsive website

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.

Illustrative

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.

Science fair

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.
