TDR – 40th Anniversary Report

To mark the 40th Anniversary of TDR, it was decided to produce a brochure in printed and interactive forms to celebrate milestones from the last four decades as well as looking forwards to future achievements.

The brochure commemorated each decade on a lateral timeline, featuring key scientific, personal and organizational achievements and providing an insight into the steps made in the overall goal of eradicating infectious diseases of poverty in disease endemic countries.

Once the printed brochure had been produced it was our job to translate this into an interactive 3-D version, which allowed the user to select their filters so that the timeline featured information of their choice – built in html 5, we made sure that the experience was not only immersive and engaging, but that it was viewable on as wide a variety of tablets and smartphones a possible, to increase the coverage to as many people as possible.
