International Coeliac Disease Symposium Branding by Clever Franke

Coeliac disease, or Celiac disease here in the states, is an autoimmune disease that causes an inflammatory response in the gastrointestinal system to gluten-containing products, such as wheat. The only way to treat the disease is by having a life-long gluten free diet. So coming up with a poster for an international conference on the subject may not be the easiest thing to do. But I think Clever Franke, a Utrecht, Netherlands based design studio, did a pretty amazing job.

The undulating patterns on the cover were inspired by villi and fields of grain waving in the wind, but it still has a very scientific vibe to it. They also did a good job of branding everything else with these patterns as well, giving the conference a uniform feel. Science and conferences don’t need to be boring and this proves it.
