We don’t feature a lot of university websites on UMS, not sure why, maybe it’s that a lot of them are just huge and feel cumbersom to review. Not this one!

I really like the header area of this website, the navigation is broken into three distinct sections and it’s easy to take in. The roll-over states are simple and understated. The logo treatment in the large upside down triangle shape really drives your eyes right down into the page, that’s well done and well placed.


The sub pages are really a standard fare type layout, but I love the section images – especially how there’s always a little element that pops up out of the image’s box, that’s a really nice little touch.
