Matjaž Čuk | Design for understanding

Drupal Version: 
Why does this website deserve to win?: 
Website was designed by award wining designer Matjaž Čuk. It has a unique layout and structure in comparison to other portfolio Websites. Drupal had a bad reputation of having "bad designs". In last years this of course changed, but we still need to show to designers that Drupal themers are capable of getting their ideas into Drupal. Why does this website deserve to win? Because it has a unique visual appearance based on a deeply though eco-friendly visual entity (http://www.mcuk.si/design/design-and-environment) with a very simple execution in Drupal 6.

How It Was Done (optional): 

Site was in work from 2011 and was released in the beginning of 2012. It was publicly announced recently since the author was not finished with publishing his references and article.

It is developed on Drupal 6 with a custom theme. Since Matjaž wanted special layouts for each project I decided to let him use html markup and markdown syntax (markdown input filter: http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/).

We are using 4 content types: page, article, news and project and each of them has a plane in the menu. Menu presence and weight is done with node queue sorting and Views.

For the front end it was important to use fonts as in visual identity so we used a Web font version of Apex.
