Website Design & Photography

About this site:

This site was created by the Spring 2011 Web Publishing 2 class from Cuyahoga Community College’s Western campus.  The students and faculty worked with The Children’s Museum of Cleveland to update their site.  The primary objectives were to make the information on the site easy to find and appealing to parents and caregivers of small children.

If your non-profit organization would like to be considered for future web design projects please contact Angela Berlingeri, Visual Communications Department Head at Cuyahoga Community College.

Lead Designer:

-Erika is a Web and Interactive Major at Cuyahoga Community College. A Highly driven, self-motivated, and detail oriented designer, whose design aesthetic revolves around being radiant, energized and bold. I design smart and play by the rules. Visit Erika’s Website at

– I have been working as a Graphic Designer at American Greetings for 14 years. I enjoy fine art photography for personal inspiration and expression. I am currently expanding my skill set by learning web design, working towards a degree in Interactive Media. Please visit my website in progress

Bruce Biro

– Graphic designer with 10 years experience currently pursuing a degree in the Visual Communication and Design: Interactive Media program at Tri-C West with an interest in developing an understanding of compliant code.

Cassie Maslanko

– Currently pursuing a degree in Interactive Media & Design, Cassie was one of the lead developers on the Children’s Museum of Cleveland’s webpage redesign project.  Finding her niche in web coding, she loves creating unique pages utilizing modern techniques and up-and-coming ideals.  Although still exploring the art & design aspect of webpage creation; Cassie often finds herself most comfortable in the hand-coding technical side of the craft instead – thus allowing her to be extremely detail oriented.  She is quick to pick up techniques and is in love with learning new concepts.  Still a work in progress, as many developer’s portfolio’s are, her main site can be found here: Design Panda.
