Why cobalt? Why a nautilus shell?

The periodic table assembles the chaotic universe of the atom into a structured orderly system, making something complex easier to understand. That’s what we do every day with our clients’ stories and messages and why we adopted Cobalt as our name. We chose the nautilus as our logo because the whorled shell is an icon of biological diversity whose shape echoes the “C” in our name.

Cobalt also reflects the background of its principals. William Harris has a degree in biology, a minor in chemistry and has wielded that knowledge on behalf of numerous technically oriented clients. Leslie Harris has spent much of her career in the pharma and biotech industries. You could say science, technology and engineering are in our DNA — and in our wheelhouse.
