Minnesota Epilepsy Group

The Minnesota Epilepsy Group (MEG) is a St. Paul-based provider of health care services to patients who suffer from seizure disorders. MEG wanted to use their new site to support patients and their families as well as promote their research by publishing outcomes and recruiting participants and partners for new clinical studies.

The visual design of the MEG site was based on a trade show environment Blinc designed and built for the practice.

The MEG project lead wanted to create all the required new written content for the site. I coached the project lead on the principles of online writing and helped edit the content he created.

Budget constraints prevented us from converting the research reports into more user-friendly HTML documents, so they were posted on the site as PDFs.

MEG redesigned the graphics and layout of their website since Blinc built it. The information architecture on the new site mirrors the one we originally established. It appears that MEG set up their new site on a content management system and took that opportunity to redress their site.
