Moderna Messenger Therapeutics is a biotechnology company that is re-engineering messenger RNA (mRNA) into a diverse set of vaccines and drugs. The company was founded in 2011 by Noubar Afeyan, Kenneth R. Chien, and Robert S. Langer and has a valuation over $2 billion.
The word “Moderna” is in #DF1335 red. The hashed lines underlining Moderna are transformed from a lighter shade to a finalized shade of #222222 blue. The red and blue contrast each other with wonderful balance.
The red signifies healthcare and the emergence of developing new medical therapies to save patient lives. The blue shows a calming tranquility of hope that Moderna therapies provide. The use of light blue to dark blue in the hash communicates a patient’s positive health progress.
The underlined hashing looks like a message being sent or a messenger. It symbolizes the company’s main product which utilizes messenger rNA. We also see a representation of the drug development process, from an idea (less defined) to a final working product ready to tackle debilitating diseases (final shade of blue, defined).
