Megan Gayle

Hello, I'm Megan. Nice to meet you!

I specialize in
web design & development

The process of designing and building interactive creations is something I've always loved doing (even when it wasn't so cool in the 90's). I grew up near the Chesapeake Bay and the intricacies in the design of nature have always been a source of inspiration to me. I revel in creative problem solving, designing user friendly interfaces and crafting semantic code. Want to see my work? Scroll onward!

Chesapeake Bay

Using data from the Chesapeake Bay Program, NOAA and the EPA, I created a site that looks at the overall health of the Chesapeake Bay. The site explores the pollutants, health of the tributaries and species that live in the Bay.

Guide to Shark Teeth

An iPhone and Android app that I designed and built to assist beach combers in identifying shark teeth. My goal in this project was to use technology to encourage users to explore nature and learn more about shark species. A portion of profits are given to various nonprofits that are dedicated to shark and marine conservation.

Frozen Planet

Originally featured on Discovery.com, seven interactive infographics were created for each episode of Frozen Planet. Worked with howstuffworks.com team to gather research in order to create wireframes and design based on facts relating to each episode. Each page was animated using Jquery and layouts were optimized for mobile users.
