Edinburgh College of Art Portfolio
In my Digital Communications role at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA), I develop content including words, images, videos and graphics for use on all of ECA’s digital platforms- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn - from planning through to delivery. 
Drawn from the City
‘Drawn from the City’ was a student project I followed independently, from planning to delivery, documenting students collaborating on a collective map displayed publicly as a billboard. Working with a variety of stakeholders, I connected with senior academic staff to shadow the project in the studio, finding out more about the project and interviewing them for quotes for the article. I built strong communication with the external advertising agency printing the billboard when contacting for further information about their involvement, I shared behind-the-scenes photos for use on their blog and website about the collaboration with ECA. I also established a good rapport with students new to ECA, documenting them working in studios naturally without any unnatural staged photos!
Conveying the stages of the journey of the project in an interesting and engaging way, using my creativity to produce content for ECA’s social media channels and an article for the website. The studio photograph achieved the most liked photo on ECA’s Instagram account but, most importantly, the high-quality visuals I produced were repurposed in recruitment materials. Illustrating the vibrant studio teaching environment at ECA on display boards for recruitment events and digital and print programme booklets.
