Since 1974, the National MPS Society and its members have been raising money to find a cure for Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) and Mucolipidosis (ML), to support families affected by these diseases, and to increase public and professional awareness. The MPS Society has successfully helped raise millions of dollars toward research grants and funding. However, to keep pace with the evolving digital landscape, MPS Society required a new website to use as a powerful tool rather than a barrier to their success.
TheeDigital migrated MPS Society’s former website over to WordPress, a dynamic content management system. With the help of our innovative web designers and custom developers, TheeDigital transformed the MPS Society’s website into a usable tool that empowers the organization to meet the goal of one day finding a cure for these diseases.
The National MPS Society approached our team with an antiquated website with overwhelming and outdated content. After performing a comprehensive website audit, we worked closely with the team to craft a roadmap for building a unique website tailored to the organization’s needs. Through the process, the client expressed challenges ranging from aesthetic pains to limitations and restrictions in how the site was managed.
Upon landing on the National MPS Society homepage, the first thing you’ll notice is the simple yet striking aesthetics. The sharp, professional design mirrors MPS Society’s own authority and credibility in the industry.
Spacious and uncluttered, visitors can easily find the information and solutions that they are searching for. Serving both individuals and organizations, the call-to-action buttons immediately channel visitors to the correct areas of the site.
As beautiful as the site may be, the real magic is the children and families that the MPS Society strives to support. TheeDigital is pleased to be part of the mission towards raising awareness and finding a cure for MPS and ML.
Using WordPress, our development team got to work with the strategy of designing the MPS Society’s new site to be clean and user-friendly for both the client and the user. TheeDigital aimed to provide the MPS Society with a custom responsive website on the latest version of WordPress with a unique, yet engaging design to meet the organization’s needs.
With so much of today’s society using portable devices, we knew the new website had to be more than simply responsive and displaying properly in all browser on all types of devices.
TheeDigital’s philosophy is that a truly responsive design must also be thumb friendly, meaning that all links, buttons and navigation are designed to be able to clicked using just a thumb. Having a truly mobile friendly experience also improves Google search engine rankings, so the website is now more visible to the National MPS Society’s audience.
User-Friendly Menu & Navigation
To add even more visual flair to the website, our designers took MPS Society’s standard navigation menu and took it to the next level. Also known as a mega menu, regular drop-down menus are expanded and upgraded to draw attention to the organization’s current program offerings while making a dramatic artistic statement!
On the sub-pages, there are additional sub-navigation menus that help users navigate to the content for which they are looking. The MPS Society now has a functional, informative resource for learning about MPS and ML.

Safe & Secure For Donations
MPS Society’s site features a secure donation page where users can conveniently make an online donation with a credit card.
SSL security isn’t only important on the donation page — the entire site is on HTTPS to give users added protection and peace of mind by ensuring communication between client and server is encrypted and authenticated.
There are other benefits of an SSL secured site. Google has previously announced that SSL security is a positive ranking signal. In addition, Google’s Chrome browser features different visual indicators if a site is secure or not. A green padlock symbol appears in the address bar of a secure site, and on an unsecured site, “not secure” warnings will show on certain form fields. TheeDigital’s SEO experts worked with our designers to ensure a fully secure and SEO-friendly website.
