georgetownedu is a site with a huge amount of content. The colors are very traditional, likely matching the official one’s of Georgetown University. The red is very strategically used for the search and footer ‘scroll-up’. I like that it’s basically a big 2 column layout, that keeps it visually simplified, which is needed with a site with large amounts of content to communicate. Check out Gio & Julia’s screen cast to hear a more in-depth analysis of the home page.
