The UCLA Ahmanson Division of Translational Imaging literally cures cancer. They have discovered a revolutionary breakthrough, allowing them to destroy cancer cells without damage to healthy cells.
The Division needed a site that was as advanced as the work they perform, and in general, the field of science and medicine is steeped in terrible design and archaic websites. Working with us they bucked this trend and we created a site that serves as a portal for patients to know they are in the right hands, for scientists who may want to work here, and for doctors to see what’s on the horizon.
Fully responsive and expandable, the UCLA ATID site is built on WordPress for ease of updates being made by non-web friendly scientists. Each can have his/her own custom Lab Page and features within the department’s site. It features custom PHP features and a robust category schema.
To go along with their fancy new digital digs, the ATID commissioned us to take some beautiful shots of them in action. Working with Sam Comen (one of our favorite local photographers) we set out to avoid the standard, boring head-shots at all cost, going for more of a Wired magazine look… and making them appear as cutting edge as they are.
