Every day someone, somewhere in Australia, will have their lives devastated by spinal cord injury.
What if there was a cure?
Right now we are on the edge of being able to restore spinal cord function. This is the tipping point.
Of all the promising avenues of research for spinal cord injury, the most outstanding results to date are being generated by Professor Reggie Edgerton and his team at UCLA in the area of neurostimulation.
The treatment involves the use of gentle, electrical currents to re-awaken dormant connections in the injured spinal cord.
After decades of research this is the first time we have seen a therapy result in actual and extensive functional return in chronic injuries.
These outstanding results inspired Spinal Cure Australia and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to collaborate with Professor Edgerton to create Project Edge.
None of this can happen without fundraising and this is where we came in.
To present Project Edge to potential supporters it needed a simple but powerful identity that captured the spirit and hope of Project Edge. We created posters, banners, brochures and a manifesto that quickly summed up the goals of this amazing venture.
A very modest task compared to the work Professor Edgerton and the Project Edge team are undertaking.
