Centre for Digital Media Students meet with Executives from Pacific News Group
January, 8th, 2013 – VANCOUVER My Projects I group - David Acuña, Nabamalika Banerjee, Andrés Fajardo, Russell Kentish and myself, Patrick Truman - had an opportunity to venture over to Pacific News Group (Vancouver Sun/The Province) on Tuesday to show them the mobile news application we had been working on for them during our first semester at the CDM. We’re pretty sure the project went well…Patricia Graham, Vice-President of Digital at Pacific News Group had this to say about it: “All of us at Pacific Newspaper Group would agree it’s been a great experience dealing with the CDM students. We find them to be very bright, articulate and conscientious, and the prototype they created is a great example of audience-first thinking.”
For us, the meeting capped off an awesome first MDM semester. We just got our project assignments yesterday, so we’re already putting rubber to the road on our new projects! Our project blogs will start popping up in the near future…stay tuned!
