The uWaterloo Sustainability site was launched in late-2008 to promote the Univesity's sustainability efforts. This was a great opportunity to take the standard uWaterloo template to the next level.
Obviously, the colour green was a key part of this design. I also wanted to give it a more elegant feel, with the introduction of some serif headers. Care was also given to the design of individual pages (such as the UW highlights page) , rather than just dumping text onto a page. Attention to the design of individual pages, and individual pieces of content, is often neglected. I enjoy the challenge of understanding the content and designing a solution to present it in the best possible way. Good design supports content.
