I now have my coffee and am moving forward with the healthcare site. I find that hospitals are very conservative (obviously) and have had much success using a minimalist approach. With this comes a grid system. Not only does it keep everything neat, it helps organize the thoughts of the copy contributers. It also is much easier for the programers to code and maintain with the millions of updates that happen on these sites. Not to mention the target launch date is just around the corner! I just found this article titled The Ins and Outs of Minimalist Design on the Design Shack website (it’s linked). It was a nice reminder of the task at hand.
