How Jproth started their web page design journey

Company name

Med-X Campaign

Overview

The issue: promoting MDMA, the drug known as ecstasy, to treat mental health problems like PTSD. This is a very important issue with a sexy solution, so we have a good chance of generating buzz, making an important contribution to social change and improving the lives of millions of people.

Hello there! My name is Jason Roth and I'm self-starting a project named the Med-X Campaign. I'm a little nervous since I've never done something like this, but the purpose is to promote one tiny little change in public policy that will make a giant positive impact on society in the long-run.

In case you're wondering, I became interested in this issue while I was a pre-med student volunteering in the lab of UCSF professor Dr. John Mendelson (http://vimeo.com/15436997). I decided to use the next year and a half before starting grad school to work on this issue.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

20-somethings who are interested in changing the world. They don't like war but they like drugs.

nonprofits that work with trauma, health professionals, veterans and veteran's groups, women's groups, donors and philanthropists, policy-makers like President Barack Obama.

Requirements

The Med-X Campaign is an information/awareness campaign. We're going to bring the internet's attention to ecstasy as the sexy solution to a longstanding humanitarian problem - PTSD in the military and worldwide. My aim is to launch the site in a few weeks, build support (ie, 100k people to sign a petition), and start/continue a conversation among policy makers and health professionals.

Use the attached Med-X Campaign logo.

please exercise caution when using drug imagery!
NO psychedelic visuals or hippie-dippie style.

At the moment, I'm envisioning three parts for this site: the main message, a video, and a petition/sign-up.

Personally, I like the colors blue, white, red and Gothic fonts but am open to your designs. Be bold, creative, and wild.

The message is a few MDMA-assisted therapy sessions has been scientifically proven to be the most effective cure for PTSD. This website needs to tell President Obama, policy makers, non-profits, and people concerned about PTSD that there is a safe, simple and effective cure. What's the best way to do this? I don't know, but it's a really interesting issue with humanitarian, economic, and medical significance, and that's why I'm at 99designs.

Page descriptions

The Page Title - About, Med-X Campaign, Contact

Page Content:
There's information to convey about the medicinal use of ecstasy. On the left, I'd like to have info that conveys three important messages about mdma:

1. it's effective. a blockbuster treatment for ptsd.
2. it's safe. risks are minimal with preparation and medical supervision.
3. it's free. the original patent has expired, it can be generically manufactured.

also note: mdma is not for daily use. typically, only a few doses (less than five) are necessary for long-term reduction of ptsd symptoms.

I know that brevity is important for a splash page, so here's one thought I had: a high-quality graph showing the results of the clinical data would look great. you can find such a graph on page 10 of the attached ptsdpaper.

Secondly, I need a spot for a video.

Also, I want a sign-up/petition site on the right side of the page with fields for names, email, zipcode, optional checkboxes for healthcare providers and people with PTSD, plus a personal message field.

References: I think it would be a good idea to include links to information on the subject that comes from reputable sources. In addition, reading these articles might help you to come up with some ideas for designs.

Existing website

http://medicinalmdma.wordpress.com/

This is a mock-up site I made using Wordpress about six months ago. I like the colors and the simple, somewhat elegant design. The ABOUT section (http://medicinalmdma.wordpress.com/about/) is well-written and informative.

It needs professional help, and that's why I'm here at 99 designs. I haven't touched the site in a while and it is outdated. I think that "Med-X" is a much better branding term than "Medicinal MDMA".

Example websites

I love the design of the Obama campaign, and this page has some elements of that in the colors and Gothic font, plus all the necessary ingredients I want to see - a message, a video, a sign-up page.

I DISLIKE the violent language and tone of the site. As Thich Nhat Hanh says, "There is no way to peace, peace is the way"

Also, take a look at MAPS.org
MAPS is the non-profit organization that has been funding the clinical trials of MDMA over the last ten years, and they are an essential reference for the Med-X Campaign.
