Kaleido Biosciences

Human Microbiome Series

Kaleido Biosciences is a clinical-stage healthcare company with a chemistry-driven approach to leveraging the microbiome to treat disease and improve human health. The company partnered with Osmosis to create a series of films that explain how it uses proprietary compounds, called MMTs (Microbiome Metabolic Therapies), to shift the metabolic output and profile of the human microbiome to help address diseases and conditions.


The stylistic approach of the Human Microbiome animation was inspired by pointillism. Osmosis animated groups of different colored dots and abstract shapes to form different shapes, systems, and bodies. This style underscores the connection between happenings on the microscopic and macroscopic level. Text on screen was also employed to call out key phrases and terms.


The films are featured on Kaleido’s website, social media, and YouTube. Additionally, the Human Microbiome animation has been used in connection with “World Microbiome Day” and a microbiome conference.

Let’s work together.
