The Redesign

The successful redesign of the site, which includes a complete content overhaul and improved navigation system, is a direct result of the collaboration between the members of the AMI Website Committee, the AMI Communications Editorial Council and Stone Interactive Group, a web-marketing agency in Ann Arbor, MI.

Social and Professional Networking Opportunities for Members In addition to a redesigned, the Association of Medical Illustrators also unveiled a new online community today, which will be available to registered members. The new online community provides a platform for AMI members to communicate and collaborate by utilizing integrated tools such as a wiki, blogs, forums, chat, and interactive galleries. Each member is offered personal space in the community – a “my page” – to store and share assets and ideas.
