Sanger Centre Art, science and history

Project overview

Deborah Robinson became interested in Malaria Programme research when artist-in-residence at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. This residency culminated in the development of her “Parasite” exhibition, a film and sound experience based on 1950’s archive footage, that mirrors the effects of malaria on the human body and mind. We were commissioned to brand the exhibition and produce the required associated literature.

Dark art

The dark nature of the archive imagery and eerie film clips, slowly eroding through their cycle due to their own software “parasite”, was the inspiration for the design style. Gritty and dark, offset with fresh blue and white, for a suitably serious feel to the exhibition brochure handout (which is an educating expansion on the thoughts and processes behind the visual subject matter) and engaging and impactful billboard marketing.
