NEW NAME – NEW LOOK

NEW NAME – NEW LOOK

The Epilepsy Association of Central Florida is now THE Epilepsy Association!   Why the name change?  Our programs have grown far beyond just Central Florida reaching millions of people every month around the world in over 150 countries.  One challenge we had was that many of the programs and services we do had different looks.  It was identified that many people didn’t know that we bring all of them to you and to the world. Now, THE Epilepsy Association, EpilepsyU.com, and EpilepsyStore.com have a fresh new and similar look that utilizes our trademarked Purple “e” Epilepsy Awareness Ribbon in their logos and design.  Thanks to a wonderful, all-volunteer team, from The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Orlando Chapter who were participating in a program called “Changemakers” they took on this project to identify our challenges and take a fresh look at all we do.   This new look is thanks to them who volunteered countless hours and their talents to make this happen.  We hope you like it!         ...
