Entry Description

Fluidigm is a life sciences pioneer who developed an
Integrated Fluidic Circuit that can test up to 96 DNA
samples simultaneously, producing lab results in under 3
hours. However, as a Business to Business company,
Fluidigm had never invested much into their over brand,
as the primary focus was on research and products.
When we looked at the current life science market – we
saw a plethora of basic logos and brand names floating
in a sea of blue tones. Rather than designing a static
wordmark, we built the brand around the foundation of
the company – a living, animated logo, reflective of the
cell samples they test. The logo morphs in an amoebic
fashion, with a sharp and dynamic ‘F’ in the center -
representing Fluidigm as a strong leader in their industry
- almost like a super-hero personified through its brand.
To redefine the color standards of the industry, and
match the personality of the company better, we chose
gradient tones of magenta and purple – new distinct
colors of science that are exemplary of the bold attitude
and persona inherent to Fluidigm.
