Proteus Gowanus


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.
