As part of a Multimedia Design course at Mizzou, I designed a site using CSS and XHTML for a reporter's story package about her trip to Rwanda to learn about life after genocide. When I received all of the story elements, there was one lengthy narrative text piece, along with photos and audio. I felt it was more effective for the web to break up the narrative into smaller sections.
Designing a website is all about organization and branding — much like producing a television newscast. The principles that apply when I'm organizing the rundown of my show also apply when designing multimedia content for the web.
Using Adobe's Flash Catalyst, I designed an interactive web project for a group of reporters' story package, "Middle of Somewhere." Telling the stories of small towns scattered across mid-Missouri, I showcased the text pieces, photos and audio slide shows in my design.
