NFSNS Website screen grab

Website Design – NFSNS

The website for the Neurofibromatosis Society of Nova Scotia (NFSNS) originally started as a real-client project for students in the Graphic Design Program at the NSCC. Each student in the class had to design their own version of the site. In the end, the client selected the design by Akira Arruda, which was the basis for the final site, completed and coded by Steelie Design.

A secondary part of building out this site involved the creation of new, simple-to-understand infographics, to explain the 50% odds of a parent with Neurofibromatosis (NF) passing the affected gene along to one of their offspring.

A normal, healthy parent cell divides through mitosis, creating two identical reproductive cells.
Illustration of a cell/chromosome splitting.
A parent cell affected by NF1 or NF2 divides through mitosis, creating two different reproductive cells – one remains unaffected, while the other will pass NF to an offspring.

Parent A carries an equal number of healthy and NF-affected reproductive cells – each with the same odds of pairing with a healthy cell from Parent B.
