European Antibiotics Awareness Day – poster and animation

These posters and online-graphics were produced to advertise the prudent use of antibiotics. Common infographic elements were used to convey a simple message. I developed the concept and was responsible for production.

All 3 poster versions have been translated into more than 25 languages. Additionally to the posters an animation was produced, which was based on an earlier version of the concept. The production was managed by Enrico Possenti and ececuted by David Enbom.The visuals can be downloaded for free in the EU bookshop.

The European Antibiotic Awareness Day is an annual European public health initiative that takes place on 18 November to raise awareness about the threat to public health of antibiotic resistance and prudent antibiotic use. The latest data confirms that across the European Union the number of patients infected by resistant bacteria is increasing and that antibiotic resistance is a major threat to public health.
