How do you sell an invisible product whose benefits are also invisible? Bioquell, a maker of hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination systems (an invisible vapor that kills microorganisms) engaged Tecture to redesign its website and other collateral materials.

ABPM: Redesigning a Medical Board’s Public Face

The American Board of Preventive Medicine initially engaged Tecture to bring its pen-and-paper certification applications online. In the process the Board decided to utilize our design chops to address its seriously dated public website. We proceeded to rebrand and update ABPM’s face to the world — giving it a contemporary, relevant, cutting-edge vibe, yet maintaining the gravitas and seriousness of purpose appropriate to a respected certifying medical board. Tecture implemented a cool, contemporary color palette of blues, teals and greens. We broke up the text-heavy site with plenty of white space and an open feel. We used a light-filled photographic style with a creative use of lens flare to give the home page an edgy, contemporary feel. And we redesigned the navigation to make it easy to navigate through the complex certification pathways and requirements. Finally, we designed an ‘Am i Qualified?’ quiz to assist physicians in determining if they are prepared to apply for certification.
