Recent work

Honeywell Research Chemicals

Following a new business acquisition by Honeywell in 2016, a new brand was born. Honeywell Research Chemicals brings together all of Honeywell’s analytical and reagent brands and businesses under one global entity.  

Purple created the brand identity in 2016 and has worked with Honeywell Research Chemicals to bring the new business to markets around the globe.

Discover the Perfect Formula

Purple was challenged with defining a new brand and identity that conveyed the strength and vision of Honeywell to the research chemicals audience. This included the “go to” market strategy, launch campaign and global multimedia plan and execution.

The ‘Perfect Formula’ campaign was designed to establish a distinctive “ownable” brand idea, as well as communicate the coming together of the various Honeywell owned brands. By using the language of chemistry the campaign connected with the target audience: scientists and researchers.

 The campaign included trade print, digital display, PPC, programmatic and social  media, receiving favourable comment both internally and with clients and partners.


Purple works with six of the world’s top ten global healthcare brands – including MSD. We produce specialist healthcare content, collateral and campaigns for professional and patient audiences. Our pharma and healthcare work ranges from print and digital adaptation to medical writing and new creative concept design. Projects undertaken include, digital detail aid content creation, patient support programmes, medical communications, and meeting event design & management.

Purple was tasked with revitalising the core campaign concept for MSD UK’s Elocon psoriasis skin cream and ointment. Purple put its finger on the ‘once daily’ key competitive claim, using a simple, alliterative line and a new photographic focus to showcase the product benefit to healthcare practitioners.
