University of Bath

The University of Bath is a premier education provider, recently ranking as 5th best University in the UK in the Guardian’s University Guide 2018. The CSCT (Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies) is held in high regard by both students and industry partners (such as GSK, Unilever, Airbus and Sharp among others) and already has around 7 applications for every place available.

Having spotted bob’s expertise in creating beautiful brochures with rich infographics, the marketing team approached us to create a brochure to promote their renowned CSCT centre and to showcase their cutting-edge research to both students and potential industrial partners.

Illustrating interdisciplinary research through infographics.

Our initial research started with a visit to the CSCT to gain an understanding of the facilities available to PhD students and the type of cutting edge research that they undertake. The marketing team were clear on their vision of how they wanted to try to visually represent the interweaving of the disciplines to break new ground, and we were tasked with creating infographics that visually resembled molecules and molecular structures in a visual metaphor with the course structures and research avenues available.

In order to create content that would be of value and interest to both students and industrial partners alike, the decision was taken to feature several case studies, that feature the interesting and varied research that takes place at the CSCT – things like Developing sustainable routes to medicine and food, and developing new sustainable plastics for instance.

The brochure also places focus on the events and workshops they put on within the community as well as the collaborations they do with various industrial partners.

“Bob listened to our brief, advised where needed and created something visually striking and individual to the CSCT while adhering to the very strict brand guidelines of the university – we’re delighted!”
