mindcheck.ca Re-Design Case Study

Fraser Health approached us in the spring of 2011 to fix a broken youth and young adult early assessment mental health tool they had had developed a year previous, the original mindcheck.ca.

The case study will cover the challenges we encountered on this project, how we were able to turn these challenges into creative opportunities and how we executed on our ideas using a lot of Drupal,  some Webforms, HTML5 video, an alpha channel, a bit of After Effects, the nimbb.com API and a couple of hours with Kevin Bieksa.

Andrew
 has been building websites since 1998 and using Drupal since 5.3. Up until two months ago he had been working as the Digital Account Director for Grey Advertising, managing digital projects for clients such as TransLink, BC Ferries, Ledcor, Wireless Wave, Tbooth, UBC ECE, BCMHAS, Westminster Savings and others. 

He is now currently operating a small web development firm (just himself) in 64 sqft of office space (it's a shed in his backyard) in South Surrey, BC.

    some definitions of schlerosis: (1) fatty deposits on the inner lining of arteries
    (2) a debilitating lack of progress or innovation within an institution or organization

    Yep, one at a time :)

    I had hoped for more about the redesign process and implementation in Drupal - but it was worth the trip across town anyway!

    The presentation was very informative. The evening was fun and I met some Drupalers I've never met before.
