“Rare Heraldic” is a new tool that aims to change the paradigm of scientific communication through the creation of a new visual language for the identification of rare diseases.

The system (inspired by ancient heraldry) thus allows us to bridge the gap between professionals, patients and other members of the rare disease community, improving communication by creating banners that, through a combination of shapes, colors and pictograms, allow us to quickly identify each of the diseases and their individual traits. The result is a flexible language that is first translated into the creation of a professional software capable of generating these banners automatically, and a “survival” kit with which patients can learn by building their own banners, overcoming the barriers of verbal language, bringing the community together and stretching the possibilities of design as a catalyst for science.
