New look and corporate identity.


Bachem wanted to create a new foundation for the way its annual report was conceived and produced. Besides a new visual look, the goal was to make the process of publishing the annual report significantly more efficient. As part of a multi-year approach, Linkgroup redefined the structure and design of the report and produced it on a one-stop basis. The result is a representative publication that ideally matches Bachem’s philosophy and self-image, with the extra benefit of adding value for marketing. Linkgroup’s collaboration with Bachem goes back to its IPO in 1998.


Bachem is a leading, innovation-driven company specialising in the development and manufacture of peptides and oligonucleotides.
