Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics at Sinai Hospital
The Baltimore Limb Deformity Course is held each year by the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics in order to teach limb deformity correction to orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists. I designed this backdrop and retractable banner to advertise the Course at various orthopedic conferences throughout the year.
I also designed this brochure to advertise the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course. I make sure to take photographs at each Course with the goal of using them in marketing materials in order to show the kind of hands-on learning that is offered.
I also designed this postcard to advertise the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course. Postcards make for a simple alternative to brochures for the Rubin Institute's physicians to bring when they are visiting professors at other hospitals so that they can travel light but still advertise the Course.
The Bone Ninja and Multiplier apps were developed by the International Center for Limb Lengthening at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics and are used at the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course as teaching tools for limb deformity correction. I designed the front and back of this postcard to advertise these two apps.
My coworkers and I developed an event app with an external vendor for the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course in order to simplify the participant experience of the Course, as well as eliminate the expense of materials and labor needed to assemble information packets for Course participants, by providing all Course information in the app. I provided art direction and troubleshooting solutions during the development stage of the app and I assisted my coworkers with populating the app with content.
I created this adapted design of the Bone Ninja app icon to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course. This design was then embroidered on beach towels that were offered as gifts to Course faculty.
Each year, various pre-/post-courses are offered at the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course to teach additional skills to Course participants. I created this adapted design of the Bone Ninja app icon to be used in association with a pre-course that focused on bone infections.
The Art of Limb Alignment textbook is used at the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course to teach the fundamentals of limb deformity correction. I design the layout for the textbook using edits provided to me by the Rubin Institute's Medical Editor and Medical Illustrator. A new edition is published each year and significant edits are made to each edition, so I created paragraph and character styles to institute and easily maintain a consistent design across all of the chapters.
A goniometer is an instrument used by physicians to measure range of motion. I worked with Dr. John Herzenberg to design this custom goniometer for Baltimore Limb Deformity Course participants.
I designed and proposed this logo to be used for the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course, as I noticed that the Course did not have a consistent identity despite being held annually for over 25 years. The concept of the logo is based on the "Tree of Andry" illustration from the 1741 book Orthopédie by Nicolas Andry, who coined the term "orthopedics."
The Save-A-Limb Fund provides financial assistance to patients of the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics who are unable to pay for expenses that are not covered by insurance. The concept behind the Fund is that deformed limbs should be corrected and saved from amputation. I worked with Dr. Shawn Standard to design this logo for the Fund that reflects this concept. The icons in the logo show a progression from reliance on assistive devices to reliance on limbs, hence why the wheelchair, crutch, and limbs are highlighted.
Patients of the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics and their families are the primary fundraisers for the Save-A-Limb Fund, but there has never been a comprehensive handout detailing what the Fund does that the fundraisers could provide to potential donors. I solicited my coworkers and supervisors at the Rubin Institute for information relevant to the Fund, such as patient testimonials and how funds are utilized, and then synthesized the information into this brochure so that fundraisers could have something to start a conversation with potential donors about the Fund.
The Save-A-Limb Fund Fest is an annual fundraiser for the Save-A-Limb Fund, with the Rubin Institute's physicians, staff, patients, and their families joining together with participants from all around the world for a day of fun activities. I designed this cover photo for the Fund's Facebook page to advertise the Fund Fest.
The Save-A-Limb Fund Fest needs event signage and large vinyl banners each year to help participants navigate the event. In order to keep expenses down, I coordinate with the event organizers to determine which signs and banners need to be produced and which are in good condition from prior years and can be reused. These are a few vinyl banners that I designed for the finish line and the front entrance of the Fund Fest.
Each Save-A-Limb Fund Fest participant receives a t-shirt for registering for the event. I designed this t-shirt for the Fund Fest using the shape of a bike sprocket with the Save-A-Limb Fund logo icons inside of it.
Many of the participants of the Save-A-Limb Fund Fest are patients of the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics, so I designed a poster using my photos from the event in order to thank them for their support. The poster was placed in the Rubin Institute's clinic so that the patients would be greeted by it when they came for their follow-up appointments.
The International Center for Limb Lengthening is one of the Centers of Excellence at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics. The Center's physicians expressed an interest in creating an external website from the LifeBridge Health domain that could be customized and improved upon from the current version of the website (seen here). I worked with my coworkers to take the input from the physicians so that I could design this mockup of a page on the new website for the physicians to review.
The orthopedic research fellows of the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics often need large scientific posters designed for display at various orthopedic conferences. I coordinate with the fellows and provide them with deadlines and content needed based on the specifications supplied by the conferences. This poster was one of over a dozen that I designed for one such conference.
External fixation is a surgical technique used to stabilize broken bones, restore limb length, and treat other bone deformities and injuries. Due to the extensive nature of this technique, involving a fixator being attached to the bone from outside the body, a guide is given to the Rubin Institute's patients and their families so they know what they should and should not do before, during, and after treatment. I created this illustration and designed this cover for the guide showing a person helping another person walk with an external fixator applied in order to symbolize the guide being the "helping hand" for patients to have success with their treatment.
