The award submission focused on improving the quality of the marshland environment by:

  • Reducing roadkill A tunnel was built for wildlife under the road
  • Installing a sewer system Eliminating road runoff into the marsh
  • Adding a meandering boardwalk For viewers to stop and park at a distance from the marsh area, without disturbing the wildlife

Colleen has proven her ability to create high quality user interfaces while respecting brand constraints. Furthermore, her innate design ability is absolutely amazing.
