Middle East Policy Council Website Design

Nonprofit think tank the Middle East Policy Center has been providing insight and analysis for nearly 30 years. Saddled with a cumbersome online publishing system and poorly architected website, the MEPC needed a quicker, easier way to publish and a user experience to made their research more accessible. We partnered with the MEPC to transform how they publish, while helping them more effectively engage and influence audiences around the world.
