Santa Clara University
Solar Decathlon 2007 Site
In a national solar-house-building competition sponsored by the Department of Energy, Santa Clara University took 3rd place, ahead of schools like Penn State, MIT, and Carnegie Mellon (I'm just a little proud). Unfortunately, the website I designed for them doesn't deserve any of the credit--my design was too blog-like for their tastes (though they kept—and tortured—the logo), and so a local firm took over the job. From this experience, I learned the importance of communicating clearly about client expectations and motivations, and also about the differences between working with student-run organizations and jen-yoo-ine business folk.
