Marketing

As a senior in college, I did an independent study with my advisor about digital journalism. In the study, I had to write and design a guide for college newspapers on how to incorporate social media in the news industry.  At this time, social media was still new and people didn't really consider it for marketing. It was a way to spread news. 

To say the least, that guide is WAY outdated now. Social media has changed the game for not only journalism, but marketing as a whole. 

In fact, I didn't realize until a little over two years ago that I've been working in marketing the majority of my career. Sure, newspapers is journalism, but you also have to work on marketing the material on social media, or making a story presentable that someone would want to pick up and read. Also, all of my "fandom" work can be considered marketing. 

Paragraph

The graphics above are some newspaper designs from my newspaper days. A few have stories that I also wrote.

The "Winnersville" design I won a first place Associated Press award for Sports Design. The Reba McEntire page is from my college days. I also took the photos for that piece. It won first place at the Georgia College Press Association that year. 

I have more that I plan on posting, I just need to find them :)

Social Media Graphics

Social media graphics are some of my favorite things to create. Why? They can be fun because everything is different. Of course you need to use branding for certain things, which I've done for things that are based around BSBFangirls.com. 

Whether it's a logo, something made through Canva, or just graphics made in Procreate with an Apple pencil, it's fun. 

Web Design

I have not done much web design recently unless it was for my own site or for work. A lot of sites I've created are no longer online because people have ever closed the sites. As I'm hoping to branch out and do more, I will add them here to my portfolio. 

backstreet's Back podcast

URL: www.backstreetsbackpodcast.com

Fellow Backstreet Boys Army member Taylor owns this website.

She has a very popular podcast and another venture where she shares things that fans do, such as art work, other podcasts, fiction, etc. She wanted to merge the two platforms and create a website with a blog. 

We worked together to plan out the site exactly how she wanted it, trying to stay with the podcast's theme colors - black and white. Various photos of the group were used, making each section almost look like an album cover.

Covenant Nursing Home

URL: www.covenantnursinghome.org

A friend of mine asked me to help with the nursing home that she and her mother runs a few years ago and I jumped at the chance. 

It's a very simple layout done with Wordpress. It was a picked theme, so I didn't have to do much work to the design. It was mostly just making pages with content already written for me. It was a very simple job.  

Because it was for a nursing home, I didn't want to go too crazy or use any crazy color.

Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it's so complicated.
