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.
