Simple Quote Feature Row

One of the biggest priorities we had while planning the Texas A&M Health redesign was making the content feel more personal, using quotes and stories from real students and faculty to highlight our messages.

When writing the HTML, I kept quote feature row simple, but included several layout options for large screens: the image can be on the left or right, top or bottom of the row. This adaptability allows the image offset to stay balanced with the rest of the page content, and lead the user's eye in the right direction. A link underneath the quote attribution can also be added to tie the quote to a news story or other more dynamic content.

              <p>With the ever-evolving state of health care, the role of pharmacists has expanded beyond the pharmacy counter to ensure that patients receive the most comprehensive care possible. Aggie pharmacists serve patients in community-based settings by administering immunizations, providing information on over-the-counter drugs and teaching about the importance of adhering to medication prescriptions.</p>
