Boyle Software’s VP of Front-end Development, Daniela Chunga, has been busy in recent months assisting our client Scholastic with the launch of their brand new Scholastic Store Online. More than simply a facelift redesign of the popular education publisher’s Web store, the project involved a major re-architecture of the underlying technologies.
“The new site runs completely off of Endeca Page Builder and behaves a little differently from the old site,” said Daniela. “The new site is all modular and snaps to a grid that was designed by Scholastic’s creative/business teams.” The redesign took months of hard work and we wish Scholastic great success with what looks to be a hugely improved user experience!
