How Far We’ve Come

Thriving in today’s world is a challenge for both individuals and companies; lower wages butt up against higher living costs, lower profits clash with higher operating costs. Add political uncertainty to the mix, and it’s no surprise that depression, anxiety and low self-esteem are reaching record levels. In the midst of this turmoil, what’s our reaction? Taking time out to revel in how far we have come – and celebrating the individuals that make change possible.

In March, I had the opportunity to visit Roche headquarters in Basel. As well as touring some of the labs, I also delved into the “Roche Archives” – a vault of company history, including building plans, staff photographs, published articles, and legal documents (even the original document founding the company, signed in 1896). There was also an old machine for making cough medicine, old diagnostic systems, company awards, Roche coat hangers, Roche teddy bears… Countless objects and documents, each with their own part to play in Roche’s success story, here.

Making great scientific magazines isn’t just about delivering knowledge and high quality content; it’s also about packaging these in the right words to ensure that someone is truly inspired by a topic. My passion is ensuring that our authors’ expertise is presented as a seamless and enjoyable reading experience, whether in print, in digital or on social media. I’ve spent seven years writing and editing features for scientific and manufacturing publications, and in making this content engaging and accessible without sacrificing its scientific integrity. There is nothing better than a magazine with great content that feels great to read.
