Soul of Athens – day one

by William Cottrell

Every year the school of Viscom undertakes a very large collaborative project called “Soul of Athens.” This project is designed to capture the events that are relevant to the people of southeast Ohio. This year there are over ninety people contributing to this project skilled in photography, advertising, print design, journalism, development and web design. 

I’m fortunate to be part of Soul of Athens this year with the role of UX designer. Today was the design team’s first workday and I was responsible for helping to develop the strategy of the website. It’s a very rewarding experience to contribute to this project with my skills in UX and this only further inspires me to pursue user experience design after grad school.
