Project Description

The majority of patient education information surrounding shingles depicts the disease on fairer skin. This poster targets Black patients who may be unfamiliar with how shingles can look on darker skin tones. Close up modeled images of the rash on different skin tones shows how varied the disease can appear. These images along with icons that show the symptoms and common areas of infection can help patients identify if they have shingles. This poster was created for an assignment in a modeling course, where 3D models created in ZBrush had to be incorporated into a poster that illustrates a pathology for identification purposes.
