There have been a few exciting new developments at Living Well With Epilepsy that we wanted to share with you. Recently we were nominated for a shorty award, welcomed our 3000th visitor and got a new look.
When voting closed for the Shorty Awards, epilepsy held a respectable 5th place out of more than 180 nominees in the Health category. This competition helped raise awareness for epilepsy and gave us the opportunity to connect with some pretty amazing folks.

Is it sacrilege to say I liked the old look better? 🙂 This one seems a little…white, but maybe I'm just being nostalgic for the past? And I'm not too sure about the logo. I feel like a logo needs to embody the brand and the message, not just be an abbreviation of the name, otherwise it's being redundant. Some “logos” are just the name itself (think Sony) while others are iconic and immediately recognizable (think Apple, Twitter). I also think the green/tan color is too pale for the web and gets a bit washed out, especially when paired with white. The other colors are great, though! I know we're all a bit change-averse, so maybe I'm just having one of those days! Happy to talk more about the changes and hear what inspired them.
And congrats on the great Shorty showing! I'm not sure but I think I came 19th out of over 400 in Science! Not too bad! 🙂

I kept going back to look at it so I'm not sure I was completely sold on the new look myself. Argh, back to the drawing board. Thanks for your feedback.
