5 Creative Environmental Engineering Website Designs

Any person that is reading this post is most likely a frequent Internet user. The population of the world in December 2011 was estimated at 6 billion inhabitants, and the number of Internet users was 2 billion people. This means that a third part of the world can be considered as an Internet user.

I am pretty sure that, like me, other people visit new websites often. Recently I have visited the following worthwhile mentioning websites, as I consider them to be creative Environmental Engineering Website Designs.

1. American Society of Civil Engineers

This society was founded in 1852 and at present, it represents more than 140,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society.

Here is a screenshot of the homepage:


Even-though I would not nominate the logo design as a unique engineering logo design, the website is easy to navigate. It has a functional base. They keep their style simple: white background, and not overwhelming texture. Readable texts, useful internal links, and other social links to share the website in other media such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc. In general terms, adequate neutral style and high quality and rotating images representing the people of the association.

2. The Civil Engineering Portal

This website is a catalogue containing lots of hand picked websites with information about civil engineering and technology.

Here is a screenshot of the homepage:


On the home page, the latest news is highlighted, and at the right-hand-side of the website there is an option for a free subscription for civil engineering magazines. The website is easy to navigate, has simple and clear website design.

3. Red Leaf consulting, Montana, USA

This company is a consulting company based in Montana, USA, that provides design, project engineering, drafting, and construction observation services.

The logo represents the name of the company very well and the red colour makes the logo vibrant. They show the projects they have collaborated on through images and a brief description – and services they offer through a downloadable brochure. Should the client be interested, the contact details are very easy to find as the mail and phone number are clearly visible.
