Mobile friendly website Cancer Drug Development Forum

After another successful project (SIOPE), the people involved decided to hire me back again for the development of another mobile-friendly, clean website with a strong visual style which would be easy to manage by their communication officers.

And sometimes, it’s hard to choose on which tradeoffs to make.
