Site Launch: Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals – Asacol

Posted in Accessibility, News, Web Standards

Screenshot of Asacol.comMy project with the interactive agency in Chicago went live. This was a fun challenge since I came on board just after the visual design, information architecture, and technical design had been established. Plus I was working remotely from Texas during the entire project (there’s a good chance I drove them crazy with so many instant messages). There are actually two sites that we created for Asacol, a product that treats ulcerative colitis. Trust me, I now know much more than I had anticipated knowing about this chronic inflammatory condition. The content of the site is extremely informative and provides some great information for both patients and healthcare professionals. This was the first time I implemented the purely CSS dropdown menu system called Son of Suckerfish Dropdowns. I guess there are advantages and disadvantages of this approach. The code is certainly straightforward and easy to edit. Take a look at the original site template.

Photo of a Longhorn SkullMy brother, sister-in-law, and their friends from Sweden all piled into a car and drove over to Ft. Worth for the day. We had fun checking out the historical Stockyards area, complete with a full re-enactment of a longhorn cattle drive right through the Main Street. Afterwards we checked out all the restored buildings, shopping areas, and then had some great barbecue at Riscky’s. Take a look at the photos I’ve added to the Ft. Worth, Texas photo set on Flickr.
