Spyder Spyder's Web
Webdesign Portfolio:  Medieval Studies, UBC

Very little information on the old page (a sub-page of another department at the time) was transferred to the new site. Much discussion among faculty and program coordinators took place resulting in a well framed plan for the site. Real photographs of vintage medieval artifacts were used and colours to best represent this era. Sub-menus on paper-like banners are used below the primary in-header horizontal menu on the few pages requiring additional levels. This was done to eliminate the need for pull-down menus or another menu bar, while keeping the content flow simple. The course listing is dynamically retrieved from a departmental database integrated with the master UBC courses and instructor databases ensuring content is always accurate.

The site was removed near the end of 2009 in favour of the new standardized university web presence. The domain was altered to medieval.arts.ubc.ca.
