I’m Emily and I have a slight (alright, life-consuming) obsession with all things multimedia. Currently, I’m a 22-year-old student at the Missouri School of Journalism. In December I’ll graduate with a BJ in Convergence (Multimedia) Journalism and BA in Spanish.
My ideal job is to take huge amounts of information and present it in a visually appealing and effective way. Call me an aspiring visual storyteller, multimedia journalist, web designer- whatever suits you best. For instance, here’s an infographic I made for the Mizzou College of Engineering. This might sound tedious, but I see the challenge as an exciting and rewarding problem-solving opportunity.
In order to further develop these skills, it’s important to learn from others’ successes and failures in the field. Building on this practice, as an assignment for my Magazines Across Platforms class, we each chose a magazine to critique for the semester. I chose to analyze NYLON Magazine and will be using this blog as a medium for doing just that. The end goal is to gain even more perspective about producing content across various platforms (iPad, web, mobile, print). I’ll blog about what the publication did well and what it could’ve done better.
Take a look around and if you have any feedback I’d love for you to shoot me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
