Drupal Version: 
Why does this website deserve to win?: 
This is a site to feature my own Drupal and software development and I wanted to have it stand out. The site deserves to win because it is very different than what you normally see done with Drupal. Drupal sites often look "boxy" due to the use of blocks, so I purposely created a design that has a more organic and flowing feel that integrates the content of the site into the overall look. The statement here is "Drupal does not have look boxy" and some very creative things can be done with Drupal. As part of this, I also wanted to showcase my own creativity and how my work flows out of my coding and writing, so the the overall design shows the site's content visually flowing out of an image of my computer screen(in the footer area).
Website Launch Date: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2012
How It Was Done (optional): 
The site uses Omega 3 theme, and a 960 grid, to help create basic regions and align blocks. However, the design was to purposely make the use of the grid transparent and create a more flowing look. Inspiration was taken from various sites that seamlessly integrate site features into the look of the site, including a wonderful Zengarden theme. For the look, I chose rich colors that are to convey a warm feeling. The site is in both in English and German and uses Drupal's internationalization features. It also uses a subtle views slideshow.
