Harvard Medical School / Brigham & Women’s Hospital
A major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital serves patients from New England, throughout the United States, and from 120 countries around the world. The hospital’s flagship magazine—which is distributed to more than 40,000 donors, volunteer leaders, hospital staff, and patients— had not evolved significantly since its last redesign in 2003 and the editorial content had become more research-based over time. The Development Office hired Taylor Design to revamp and relaunch the publication with a goal of deepening its engagement with supporters, friends, and donors. In addition, they wanted to launch a dynamic digital presence to more fully engage today’s younger philanthropists. An extensive research and content strategy effort informed all design and development decisions. The new magazine showcases advances in patient care, medical education, research, and community health, while also raising awareness and communicating key fundraising messages to a diverse audience. Most importantly, it underscores the hospital’s leadership as a research powerhouse across many specialties and honors the institution’s heritage of providing patient care that is second to none.
Starwood Capital Group
Starwood Capital Group is a private investment firm with $37 billion worth of global real estate assets under management. Looking to attract young talent and distinguish the firm from its more conservative Wall Street competitors, the Starwood marketing group engaged Taylor Design to give its websites a more polished and contemporary look. The design team jumped right in, emphasizing location imagery to project a bold sophistication while highlighting the incredible portfolio of Starwood Capital Group assets around the world. Incorporating the latest interactive techniques, the sites feature tablet- and phone-friendly navigation, easy-to-use content management systems, mapping tools, and search engine optimization. The result: stunning first impressions for the different properties and of Starwood as the savvy market leader.
Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services
TurningPointCT.org was developed for young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues. Our goal in developing the site was to provide information and support to help youth to choose the right path. TurningPointCT.org guides the search for mental wellness, empowering teens and young adults in their search for emotional and mental health. The website helps visitors understand their options and learn how to navigate the behavioral health system: specifically helping them learn about treatment models, local community supports, and state and national resources; as well as helping them connect with other teens and young adults who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm, thoughts of suicide, addiction, mood swings, eating disorders, substance abuse, or any form of emotional distress or mental illness.
