After 5 successful years of providing compound management services across the nation, the Queensland Compound Library is changing its name to reflect that we serve scientific research across Australia.
Throughout 2014 we will be making the transition to our new name and brand of “Compounds Australia”, culminating with a media relaunch on October 29th during AusBiotech 2014 at the Gold Coast Convention Centre.
We engaged Liveworm, a student-powered graphic design studio within the Queensland College of Art, to produce a new logo to be used in marketing material.
About the logo
This logo illustrates our unique and specialised equipment. The concentric rings of dots symbolises storage of microtubes in "carousels". Each carousel is a metre-wide engineered disc with over 3,800 holes to fit individual microtubes. Compounds Australia has 130 of these carousels across five storage units.
The diminishing size of the dots towards the centre represents the range of liquid volumes we can dispense, from 1 millilitre down to 2.5 nanolitres (1 millilitre contains 1 million nanolitres).
Liveworm is a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) space embedded within the Queensland College of Art (QCA), Griffith University South Bank and Gold Coast campuses. Liveworm operates as a graphic design studio undertaking projects for the university as well as external clients. Students are supervised by a highly qualified and experienced management team and benefit from valuable hands on experience as they prepare to graduate and move into the design industry.
