CQDM is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to identify, fund and support joint research projects between the academic and private biopharmaceutical sectors. Projects funded by CQDM target the development of innovative tools and technologies that accelerate the drug discovery process.
For CQDM’s 2013 annual report we set out to bring a little color to this biopharmaceutical company, as well as showcasing some of their ground-breaking scientists in a way that made them appear proud yet approachable. To do this, we decided to put our researchers in front of their own work instead of the classic stuffy headshot, and used colors and an illustration style that were fun and contemporary.
