Trace Genomics was founded on the belief that soil science should be accessible for people to make practical decisions. Soil testing at the DNA level opened up a new layer of data that had never before been accessed at scale—the technology was limited to a research environment. In 2015, Diane Wu and Poornima Parameswaran changed that, and brought soil DNA sequencing to every farmer, agronomist, and stakeholder working with soil. They took science out of the lab and into the field and translated soil DNA into actionable insights.
Jessica has been working with Trace Genomics since the summer of 2018. She has helped push the company’s branding to create a set of cohesive templates for Trace Genomic’s marketing collateral. Jessica has worked on everything from Case Studies to Infographics, Tradeshow Displays to Brochures. Here we are sharing two Customer Stories that help showcase the success of this company.

In fall of 2015, the healthcare group at Crowe Horwath held a healthcare summit, where hospital and healthcare executives from across the country met. Jessica designed a printed program, presentation decks, emails for pre- and post-conference communication, signage, and even developed an app using Adobe DPS. The app was intended to be a resource where users could easily access program details like schedules, speaker biographies, hotel maps, and download presentations. The theme "Focus on the Future" was carried out through the promotional material.
The following year (2016) Jessica designed the same promotional materials for the annual healthcare summit, including brochure, email communications, signage, and apps. The theme "Empowering Data" and accompanying visuals were carried out though out the material.
