Ersilia is a nonprofit enterprise that aims to provide the community with a set of computational tools related to global health drug discovery. Their goal is to lower the barrier to the development of new medicines by setting up an environment for open-source drug discovery.
In Italo Calvino’s ‘Invisible Cities’, Ersilia’s inhabitants stretch strings from the corners of the houses to mark their relationships. We played around this concept to make an identity that uses strings to divide and order content. More than reproducing a mesh, we were appealed by the idea of a string that is stretched from an object and looks for a connection.
