Columbia University Medical Center: Friends of Urology

Responsibilities: Logo/Branding/ID Design

In 2012, the Columbia University Medical Center's Friends of Urology contacted gbmediadesign to create a logo for their organization. The visual goal of the project was to combine the iconic medical caduceus with their name. The result was a clean typographic logo that weaves the caduceus into the "I" of "Friends." In addition to the logo design, gbmediadesign created accompanying letterhead as well.

On the Road: Travel in Jewish History

Responsibilities: Logo Design

This logo was created to support the Center's 2012 Lecture Series entitled, "On The Road: Travel in Jewish History." For this project, gbmediadesign was granted access to images from the Center's collection that featured travel in the most literal and figurative sense of the word. Ultimately, the image of the ballooning couple was chosen to adorn a "virtual postage stamp" inviting folks to participate in the series of lectures that supported the travel theme.

In-Vision Seminars Logo

Responsibilities: Logo/Branding/ID design

In-Vision Seminars contracted gbmediadesign to create two logos to brand its experiential workshops for physicians, health-care practitioners, and the general public. In-Vision Seminars provides mind/body seminars by leading practitioners in the field. Though visually distinct, each logo features an interplay between traditional and spiritual iconography. This interplay symbolically represents the mind/body focus of In-Vision Seminars workshops and programs.

Ojibwe Digital Archive

Responsibilities: Graphic Design, Web Development, Information Architecture

The Gibagadinamaagoom web project dedicates itself to preserving and revitalizing Anishinaabemowin (‘the Anishinaabe language’) and culture to empower future generations. The site features tribal elders (‘wisdom keepers’) telling stories and teaching about traditional codes of conduct. Constructed in close consultation with elders from the Leech Lake, White Earth, and Fond du Lac bands, the site utilizes audio and video technology to enable the Anishinaabeg to recount their own history, in their own language, and on their own cultural terms. This site communicates the power of stories and the importance of sharing those stories.

Unitarian Universalists of the Cumberland Valley

Responsibilities: Graphic Design, Information Architecture, Web Design, and Web Development

The Unitarian Universalists of the Cumberland Valley (UUCV) website redesign project took an outdated html site and rebuilt it to run on an open source content management system (CMS). The new site is optimized for mobile devices ("responsive") and because it is built on a CMS it is easier to update and manage. Also, gbmediadesign worked closely with the congregation's project team to update and refocus the content so the website more accurately reflects the congregation's activities.

Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania

Responsibilities: Graphic Design, Web Design, and Web Development

The website for the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania was created using an open source content management system (CMS). It formally launched in the fall of 2011 and acts as the virtual hub for this distinguished research center. A highlight of the project was the creation of a dynamic fellowship area to facilitate and manage information related to each year’s incoming fellows as well as the theme of the program year. Interested fellows can discover the academic scope of a given fellowship year, apply online to the program, and once accepted, have access to a “For Fellows” area that is a password-protected fellowship information portal available directly from the Center’s website. This site also supports an ongoing archive of participating fellows. gbmediadesign customized the CMS to facilitate adding information about each fellow and associating each fellow to a given fellowship year and theme.
