Design for COVID Relief

clients(pro-bono): Africa CDC, Stanford Univ., Weill Cornell Hospital
Antibody Testing Info SheetSanta Clara Dept. of Health
Background: In early April, researchers at Stanford Health started conducting antibody tests (serosurveys) to research the prevalence of the COVID-19 virus in Santa Clara County.
Design brief: Create a document for study participants that explains the test and its importance, and is easily understandable for “low literacy” patients.
We simplified a large chunk of text into a more digestible Q&A format and added illustrations. The resulting document was translated into Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and Vietnamese.
I worked with Stanford researchers on a study of COVID prevalence in jails, adapting the information for a flyer circulated in the Santa Clara County jail system.
COVID Home Care Guide
Weill Cornell Medicine
Background: Requested by physicians at Weill Cornell Medicine (NYC). Many providers quickly started using remote “telemedicine” services to care for COVID patients.
Design brief: Create a reference guide for homebound COVID-positive individuals. The design should be understandable and engaging for people with low literacy skills.
I broke the text into digestible bullet points to increase clarity, and created icons to represent “emergency” symptoms and delineate other sections of the guide. A muted color palette creates a calming and reassuring feel.
