As promised, here are animated new year/seasons’ greetings from our Design Team. Enjoy…
Seasons’ Greetings, Short and Sweet:
A Lookback at 2011, and a New Year’s Wish:
Every now and then, the design team gets a chance to take a break from the tasks related to support materials or marketing stuff like catalogs or fliers. These are the holidays! If you browse around the site you will find a splash for Christmas or Hanukkah. This year, we did our first Puja card. Puja is a Hindu occasion for prayer, and a week ago, it was time for Durga Puja which is a week long prayer. Many of Dhaka city’s fields are decorated and special houses are built for the deities and the people who will come for prayer. Our card features the likeness of Durga, and she is the center of this puja as you can tell by the name! Here are our two designs.
Agencies all across USA have celebrated the heroes of the disability industry – the direct support professionals or DSPs. We had also wanted to show our respect and the design team prepared a graphic that we put up on our site to salute the DSPs.
TRC (from New York) who is a long time Therap user has also created a video that they spread around their agency using SComms to mark the week:
Feel free to share how your agency celebrated the week on our Facebook page.

North South University’s Computer Club organized an IT Fair here at one of Dhaka’s largest convention center. The two day long fair aptly named NSU IT Fair 2008 drew quite a good number crowd from various walks of life. The visitors of the fair included mostly university graduates, freshers, job-seekers, IT specialists and entrepreneurs, just to name a few. The fair comprised of various established IT firms from around the capital city. Internet service providers, software development companies, logistic support providers and business solution experts were among the many categories of firms that were present there. Most of them were there either to market their business solutions, or mainly to broadcast themselves to potential customers.
We were lucky to get the very first booth and that too was placed just after the entrance to the fair. The best part was that everyone visiting the fair could not help, but notice us. I should add that our bright and lively banners did nothing less than arouse their curiosity. There were mainly two groups of people that visited our stall. One group was who knew about Therap beforehand and wanted to learn more. They had questions ranging from recruiting and our operations to how we work and what technologies we use. The other group was the one who met us for the first time or heard about us from other sources. They were quite interested in what we do and were not afraid to ask questions.
We were busy handing out flyers and catalogs which I would say worked out quite well. At day’s end we were quite satisfied with the responses we received.

Therap recently signed a MOU with some NGO’s and the Government of Bangladesh to create a national database for people with disabilities. This pilot project is the first step that will assist in formulating national policies for people with disabilities. Once under operation, the project will aim to collect data from various districts across Bangladesh.
We here at Therap’s Design Team are proud to be a part of this project as we were involved in engineering the entire user interface for the software. The information used in the interface were directly translated from a paper based form. We worked together with the Training and Implementation Team to make sure everything in terms of content was in proper order.
The following screens are still in its initial stage and the final product may differ in terms of content and layout.
