The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research or WEHI is one of Australia’s leading medical research institutes.

D MAX produced a huge range of communications materials, including annual reports, signage, brochures and flyers, advertisements, educational materials, medical illustrations, 3D visualisations and animations.

The commemorative booklet for Nobel laureate MacFarlane Burnet’s theory of clonal selection is representative of the kind of work we produced for WEHI.

Here’s what Brad Allan, WEHI’s Communications Manager, had to say about our association with WEHI.

‘During my time as Communications Manager for WEHI (2001-2009), D MAX was the prime external provider of multi-media design services. From WEHI’s perspective, Chris had a uniquely advantageous profile, being a superb designer who originally trained in medicine. In particular, his grasp on how the complexities of molecular biology could be presented in vivid and simplified yet accurate ways was remarkable. This enabled him to produce strikingly beautiful artwork for animations, online resources, books and magazines. During my tenure, Chris was also commissioned to produce highly original designs for three-dimensional and sculptural plaques that were created to celebrate milestones in the development of WEHI and the associated Gene Technology Access Centre (GTAC).’
