Drupal Version: 
Why does this website deserve to win?: 
This is my portfolio site. It's evolved over the years from a custom cms, to drupal 5, then 6 and now drupal 7. I recently updated the graphic design and ported it to drupal 7, it's still a work in progress. The next phase is the mobile version of the theme. The right hand menu will take over the whole mobile screen and switch to the left hand content view when the user clicks an icon. In this sense it has been designed with a mobile first approach. The site has always served me well.

Matt Terry : Blog Page layout
How It Was Done (optional): 
I originally upgraded this site from drupal 6 to 7 but it was before the upgrade path worked fully. I think I ended up 'massaging' the data in to place. It's the first time I've really used Display Suite and I love it. I've often tried to use Panels on site builds and always ended up doing things manually. Display Suite - by contrast - did exactly what I needed and constantly surprised me with added features. I also use Views, Google Fonts, Global Redirect, Pathauto, Token, Block Tab (for the right hand menu), Hansel Breadcrumbs, Colorbox, Metatag, Google Analytics.... The theme is extremely simple, just 2 images for the header and repeating background, plus a little css for layout, round corners and shadows. I always use Zen as my base theme.
