About the Logo

The Washington University Center for Cellular Imaging (WUCCI) logo was designed by Christine Bosch, an undergraduate student in the Sam Fox School of Design at Washington University in St. Louis.

Christine wanted to incorporate wave imagery into the logo design as a way of visually representing the work of the WUCCI. Throughout our initial discussions with Christine we explained the role of different "waves" such as light, electrons, ions and x-rays that the WUCCI uses to study the structure and dynamic function of biological systems. Using these wave shapes, she created a logo that is clean, recognizable, and expressive of the WUCCI's identity.

Christine Bosch is an illustrator and graphic designer with a weakness for stong coffee because of her caffeine problem and beluga whales because they are adorable. Christine attends the Sam Fox School of Art and Design at Washington University in St. Louis and is majoring in Communication Design (with an emphasis in Illustration). She has worked for several start-ups, the WashU student union, ArchHacks 2016, WashU Medical School, and Hallmark Gold Crown. 

Christine's personal statement:

"I believe that branding design is a powerful tool which can covey a group's purpose and identity, and I love getting to work with people to help them express who they are and what they are passionate about!"
