MetaboLight: Engineering light to monitor brain health in babies

Brand identity, website and animations for Wellcome Trust funded UCL public engagement project

Feb 2017

The Wellcome Trust have funded a public engagement project to communicate new research by Ilias Tachsidis‘s team at UCL’s Dept of Medical Physics and Bioengineering, about medical applications of near-infrared spectroscopy. We are working with the team to produce the logo and visual identity, interactive display, short film, and printed and online material.

The display will first appear at Norwich Science Festival in October 2017.
