As the in-house graphic designer at the UCSF Alliance Health Project, I create a broad array of materials including websites, ads, fundraising materials, promotions of every kind, newsletters, banners, postcards, annual reports, and more.
The Alliance Health Project, founded in 1984, is one of the oldest AIDS service organizations in the United States. It serves more than 8,000 clients per year, employs approximately 100 full- and part-time staff, and has an annual budget of about $8 million. AHP is a program of the Department of Psychiatry of the University of California San Francisco and is affiliated with San Francisco General Hospital. The AIDS programs of both of these institutions are ranked among the best in the world.
AHP provides the full range of mental health services and support to the entire LGBTQ community as well as those living with and affected by HIV. AHP pioneered many of the mental health interventions used to serve people with HIV and those seeking to remain uninfected. To share these experiences and magnify the effects of their expertise, AHP is a leading developer of mental health-related publications and training programs for people working with HIV and the LGBTQ communities.
