Pendulum uses the exacting nature of science to harness the relationship between the human body and the microbiome—revolutionizing medicine today. This positioning anchored each brand touchpoint.

The story of the microbiome is a human story—that’s been there since the beginning. Hence, the persona that leads our verbal identity is The Archaeologist. Driven to find answers, boldly sharing discoveries, and open to seeing the potential of helping people. Our voice modulates with distinct messages to our consumer and corporate audiences, respectively. With corporate messages we speak to our place within health innovation, research, etc. While our consumer messages speak directly to how Pendulum can positively impact your individual health, starting with the brand’s first diabetes management-centric product.
