Pharmaron’s Building Blocks

When you look at the Pharmaron logo, what do you see? The figure and name are inspired by tangram, building blocks, chemistry and biology. Tangram is a thousand-year-old children’s game from China that consists of seven flat pieces, with the objective to use all seven pieces to create numerous, new shapes. Dr. Boliang Lou, CEO and Chairman, also a chemist, saw the similarities between tangram and chemistry. “Like tangram, chemists start with the same building blocks, but each creates something different. Both the game and the science have the potential for endless opportunities to build something new.” The whole of Pharmaron’s logo represents our core values, including diversity, unity and team spirit, in addition to our ongoing commitment to building strong relationships with our partners and providing diverse drug R&D services.

Pharmaron favicon

The red and blue shapes represent the binding of molecules to their biological targets.The upper right of the tangram figure is marked with red to form the visual center of the whole logo. Red symbolizes the researchers’ strong sense of responsibility and dedication to pharmaceutical research. The bottom left of the tangram figure is marked with blue, which strongly supports the red on the upper right. The blue symbolizes professional quality.

The Chinese characters reflect key aspects that Pharmaron represents to its partners: health, dragon (a symbol of a vigorous business), transformation/chemistry and success. The name “Pharmaron” completes the building block metaphor, as it is reminiscent of the word synthon, a synthetic building block or a pharmaceutically relevant synthon.
