Want to know about each team member? We are students at the University of Georgia's New Media Institute.
Skills and specialties that will contribute to the project: As an advertising major, I will be involved in the strategic planning aspects of creating what will inevitably be a marketing piece for the city. I have worked on creating marketing and advertising pieces for a variety of large and small companies. Additionally, I will focus on branding pieces, such as the logo for the project, and other design needs using Adobe software. I also have an understanding of Marvel that can be used in the wireframe creation where the app and user experience will be designed.
Skills and specialties that will contribute to the project: Considering I am an English major, I can contribute strongly to any written work--either with communication with the client, blog posts, or content within the project and its corresponding website. Apart from written content, I will be happy to contribute with any HTML/CSS content along with providing media for the project. I am also able to go to the project’s physical site (Norcross) for media or face-to-face correspondence if/when needed. Currently, I serve as the main correspondent between our team and the city of Norcross and their tourism and creative contacts. Current written works for the project include a newsletter for Norcross employees and residents.
Skills and specialties that will contribute to the project: As a journalism major, specializing in digital and broadcast, my strengths lie in content, video production and photojournalism. Over the course of this semester and for this project, I will be focusing on a majority of the content, as we are foreshadowing that being a large part of our project. I will also provide my expertise and skills in the multimedia aspect of what we are planning for this capstone project. After we get more information from our client, we will move forward with a more tailored plan for each of us and what we will do with photo and video.
