I basically did the redesign for Globe's new coroporate site. I focused a lot on a cleaner look and really crisp ui elements. XHTML strict (well at least my initial markup files were. java-based cms screwed it up) and I leveraged a lot of CSS3 stuff and 32-bit transparent images. The best thing about this project is that I got the client to totally screw IE6 over.
