Thames Valley Clinical Trials Unit

The Thames Valley Clinical Trials Unit (TVCTU) is an exciting new collaboration between the University of Reading, the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust and the Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. They approached Studio 18 to design an identity and create a web presence.

The logo is based on the notion of collaboration between the 3 supporting organisations and features the acronym within the icon so it works as a standalone icon. Brand Identity Guidelines were also supplied outlining rules for how the brand should be supplied when creating in-house communications.


TVCTU Branding

branding agency design for TVCTU


“Studio 18 were a pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job helping us to create a unique and impactful identity for our new Thames Valley Clinical Trials Unit (TVCTU) partnership. Despite our rather vague and certainly non-expert initial ideas, they quickly understood what we were aiming to achieve and convey with our branding and spent time to get to know the partnership and our vision for it. Jon fully engaged with the brief and was approachable and obliging, making it a seamless process! We are delighted with our new TVCTU logo and branding and would highly recommend Studio 18.”
