Role: Web Developer & Designer
Client: Therapeutics Initiative, UBC
Publishing studies on drug therapies based on evidence
Therapeutics Initiative (TI) is an organization, funded by UBC, to provide evidence on drug therapies, independent of corporate entities.
Therapeutics Initiative (TI) at UBC has a website that receives high traffic from healthcare professionals. One of the pitfalls is that their search functionality is not working at all.
They made their last upgrade in 2010 to Drupal 6. This content management system requires the administrator to be technical proficient and so it is cumbersome to make updates to. One of the main objectives is to switch to the more admin-friendly WordPress system.
Design: the new TI site design makes content easy to scan and access.
- Bigger focus on social media on the home page
- Use of prominent buttons for event registration, downloads, and social sharing
- Profiles on the About pages condensed in a grid and can be expanded to view details
Content: I migrate over 200 posts to the new site.
- Better content layout for readability and online scanning
- Use of different post types for better grouping of material.
Functionality: basic functions like search and mobile responsiveness work seamlessly
- Mobile responsive
- Retains multilingual capability
- Search produces results by relevance
- Easier to manage
- Comments are sent to admins for moderation and approval
Resource website • Mobile responsive theme • WordPress CMS • Multi-language (English & Spanish) • Event registration buttons • Blog (News, Letters, etc.) • PDF Downloads • Social Sharing

I found Tiffany by chance when I was under a tight time crunch to complete my website. She took the rough draft and gave it a major face lift in a very short time frame. I am very pleased with Tiffany’s work along with her professionalism and dependability. Tiffany is a shining star and a dream to work with! I will definitely hire her again for future projects.
I highly recommend Tiffany without reservation to help you and your company get the most out of your web presence.
Tiffany always responded promptly to our calls or emails and provided the answer or the further upgrade we requested. It is very reassuring to know Tiffany is so accessible when we need help. Our customers expressed they liked our new website and the growth in our business across Canada has proven it works.
