As a part of PR team I was closely cooperating with all EMA departments to deliver tailored icons illustrating complicated scientific terms. Iconography was designed to use for traditional and new media channels for both internal and external use. 
As a result I have built and maintained a rich library of around 200 visual icons that are compliant to Agency’s brand identity and could be reused in infographics, data visualisations, social media campaigns, presentations, scientific documents, infosheets, reports like EMA’s Annual Report 2017.

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) icon 
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the ability of a microorganism (like bacteria, viruses, and some parasites) to stop an antimicrobial (such as antibiotics, antivirals and antimalarials) from working against it. As a result, standard treatments become ineffective, infections persist and may spread to others. Antimicrobial use in animals can contribute to the emergence of resistant bacteria that can be transferred to humans through the food chain or direct contact. This can reduce the effectiveness of antimicrobials for treating human disease. EMA organised awareness session on AMR in September 2017 in London.
The challenge was to design icon which could be used for visually engaging banner used for promotional social media campaign and for the banners used during the event. And also for the layout and the cover for the report from the awareness session.
As a result I crafted icon showing the connection between 3 elements: food-producing animals using antibiotics, antimicrobial-resistant bacterias developed in food-producing animals and humans exposed to antimicrobial-resistant infections. The icon has been well received and it has been widely reused in other promotional and scientific materials of EMA.
