Students UH Design Workshop created a new website design for the School of Architecture. The new website parallels the idea of getting all the information on a single sheet of paper and was created without the use of flash so that it will be accessible from all computers.

In the spring of 2008, the Graphic Design Program initiated the UH Design Workshop—a special studio, run by advanced (BFA) graphic design students (with faculty supervision) and committed to providing high-quality graphic design work for non-profit organizations in Hawai‘i. Projects that the Design Workshop has undertaken include yearly planners for the UH Health Services and an annual report for the State of Hawai‘i Environmental Council. Currently the workshop is redesigning the visual identity of the UH School of Architecture and the visual identity of the Hawaii Nature Center (including logo, signage, print materials, and website). Although the studio is only two years old, all completed projects have already won local or national recognition including awards from the American Institute of Graphic Arts (Hawaii Chapter), the American Advertising Federation (Hawaii Chapter), and HOW Magazine, a national publication showcasing outstanding work in graphic design.
