About me


About
Hello! My name is Jeshua Read. I am an Interaction Designer. When I was a kid I loved to take things apart and see how things worked. I wanted to learn what made the thing do what it did. Fast forward to now; not much has changed. Taking a problem, deconstructing it, analyzing it, and developing a working solution for a client, is what makes interaction design exciting.

Q&A
Did I hear your name right?
Joshua

Who's your favourite superhero?
Spiderman

FUN FACTS
I love 'The Office'

I have a birth mark in the shape of a manatee on my right leg.

I once biked from Oakville to Hamilton, and back on a whim.

An investigation into community building for children in long-term hospital care.

why?

Isolation is a daily struggle for children in long-term hospital care. These kids miss out on connecting, experiencing, and playing with other kids in the hospital community. This contributes to the solitude of isolation. Kids hospitals have missed the opportunity to make their communities completely accessible.

what?

Pop is an app that focuses on building stronger communities for kids hospitals. The purpose is to get kids bursting out of their bubbles of isolation and to participate in their community. Pop makes it fun and accessible for users to connect, experience, and play with other kids just like them.

how?

One of the questions I asked myself was, “How can I eliminate isolation in long-term hospital care?” Through research and talking to experts I discovered that the answer was already present. Community was the solution. The missing link was a bridge that could connect all of it's community members.
