For my capstone project at Syracuse, I worked with Newhouse professor Seth Gitner to design a website for his annual Multimedia Immersion Workshop. Held each May on campus, the week-long program helps journalists expand their skillsets by mixing photos, audio and video content into multimedia formats.
This NPPA sponsored workshop is at the forefront of the visual journalism industry and has an impressive alumni roster. We aimed to build a site that not only featured registration information and FAQs, but that also allowed former students to look each other up and connect.
Most importantly, the site needed to work best on mobile, because most students are journalists on the go, working in the field.
