Web Projects

This section presents online projects that I have developed or contributed to. My contributions include graphics and layout, content editing, content development, client programming (JavaScript) and server-side programming (primarily ASP in JavaScript or CGI in Perl).

Sharon Edwards Novels

Graphics work included work in Adobe Illustrator to select alternate glyphs in the font (Feel Script), modifying the color set of a repeating pattern, and creating the custom background shape. Graphics layout and production was done in Adobe Fireworks. HTML and CSS were produced in Dreamweaver and TextPad. Maintenance is ongoing.

Collaborative Artists EastWest

Collaborative Artists EastWest Collaborative Artists EastWest is a non-profit artists group, seeking "to connect communities through the universal language of music and other arts, transcending everyday boundaries and enabling us to connect deeply by recognizing our common ground and recognizing our differences."

Dr. Regina Yeh contacted me to help them bring a new design to an existing site. The group wanted to be able to maintain the site themselves using Adobe Contribute, so the site was designed for that requirement. The group also had a design direction, preferring a red background and the inclusion of the Chinese symbol for music. Site design included creation of a logo, site layout, all graphics, HTML and CSS coding, transferring existing content into the new design, as well as incorporating new content.

Seattle Composers Alliance

SCA composers write music for all media, including film, television, games, and advertising. The purpose of the Web site is to publicize the organization and its educational outreach and to promote networking.

Development of the SCA site included establishing the information architecture, designing the site layout (based on an existing logo), editing event announcement text, and assisting with email and email lists. The site was re-designed in 2005. I was the site Webmaster from its inception in 1999 to 2009.

Athena, Earth and Space Science for K-12 Athena (1994–97) was a NASA-funded educational project to develop science curriculum materials for K-12. Athena was a partnership between Science Applications International Corporation, the Washington state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), and four school districts (Seattle Public Schools, Bellevue Public Schools, Northshore School District, and Lake Washington School District). Scientist-educator writing teams developed activities and lesson plans focused on online earth science data from NASA, NOAA, and other sources.

My involvement in Athena included contributing to the proposal, writing the configuration management plan, writing and editing curriculum materials, and answering site feedback questions from our global audience. I was also the Webmaster at the close of the project.
