Day 358: Finish with Abroad View
August 26, 2011 § Leave a comment
Abroad View magazine: the only student-focused publication that offers fresh and practical stories about living and learning overseas.
This is the project I have been working on for the past three months with a team of 16 peers – revitalizing a magazine for study abroad students, from initial conception and audience research to the development of a fully functioning online prototype, media kit and business plan. We even accrued over 1000 Twitter followers. I was Manager of Audience Engagement and Social Media. Yesterday we gave our final presentation to an audience of 60 people, including the dean, plus had over 30 viewers watch our live web stream. Today, at a celebratory brunch, we savored the fact that we created an entire magazine in such a short period of time. It was a hell of a ride.
Check out our work at abroadviewmagazine.net, and read the feature I wrote for the homepage about American students pretending to be from Canada while abroad.
Below is a story I wrote about Salzburg, Austria for the media kit. Check the professional layout – it really looks incredible. Congrats to everyone on such an awesome achievement and a job well done.
