We were honored when Howard Steiger, the head of the eating disorder clinic at the Douglas Hospital, approached us with a unique opportunity. The chance to create a web application aimed at supporting the treatment of individuals with eating disorders filled us with both excitement and a deep sense of responsibility.


We understood the significance of this project, as it had the potential to make a real difference in the lives of patients seeking help. Our team eagerly accepted the challenge, recognizing the importance of developing a user-friendly and intuitive platform that could provide valuable resources, support, and personalized tools for those on their path to recovery. This endeavor not only allowed us to showcase our design skills but also presented a meaningful opportunity to contribute to the well-being of those in need.

The tool, called “Auto-Soins pour les Troubles de l’Alimentation,” aims to provide a comprehensive and interactive web application for individuals struggling with eating disorders, offering them self-care resources, personalized support, and valuable tools to aid in their recovery journey.

We focused on creating a clean and inviting visual aesthetic, employing soothing colours and engaging typography to promote a sense of calmness and comfort. The layout was designed to be clear and organized, with easily navigable sections and intuitive menus that allowed users to access the various features and resources seamlessly.
Overall, our goal was to create an interface that not only provided valuable information and tools but also fostered a sense of empathy, understanding, and support. We wanted the design to reflect the compassionate care offered by the Douglas Hospital, providing a visually pleasing and empowering experience for individuals seeking help and healing.


The project was a success, greatly benefiting numerous patients who found the web application to be immensely helpful in their treatment. Encouraged by this positive outcome, we are now preparing to launch an advanced, secondary version of the application to the public. This expanded version aims to extend support beyond the clinic’s patients and assist individuals in the general public who are dealing with eating disorders, offering them valuable resources and tools for their recovery journey. The launch is estimated to be in 2024.
