I was the interaction designer for Scholastic Red, a project launched in 2001. The entire program is designed to teach teachers to teach reading better.
From 2002-2008, I designed, programmed, and maintained the first iteration of the Proteus Gowanus Gallery website. I also designed the initial site for their store. This taught me a lot about code as I did this without the benefit of a CMS: yep, I hand-coded the whole thing while cutting my teeth on HTML and CSS. The current version, designed by someone else, is just lovely and probably way easier to maintain.
I worked for several years as the designer for Scholastic RED, an online program designed to teach grade school instructors to teach reading better. One component of the program were supporting graphics, animations, or interaction pieces called RedTVs.
