This is the third iteration of Greg's site built in Drupal and this recent redesign is intended as a 'personal landing page' to act as a replacement for a once-upon-a-time active blog. The goal here is to provide a concise log of actions and activities across the web. This is our first responsive web design project, with varying layouts optimized for desktop, tablet and mobile device viewing.
Thesis publication for the 2006 graduating class of the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape & Design. This job required streamlining 55 diverse projects, balancing an extremely tight production budget, and adhering to a very rigid schedule. As an exercise in information design, this project is an important ancestor of our current work as Greg took a particular interest in the thematic cross-connectivity between the projects within this book. He created a custom indexing system to allow for lateral movement through the projects by pedagogy, geography and theme.
