Now Here This
CATEGORYIdentity, Print, Web
I am the Web & Graphics Editor of Now Here This, a platform for student-produced audio storytelling of all kinds at Brown University. Updated weekly, Now Here This features memoirs and interviews, investigative journalism and live storytelling, slam poetry, and more.
I designed the logo and brand to balance modern, sleek professionalism and a slightly retro, hipster sensibility that reflects the by-student, for-student nature of the project. For the website, I sought to find a way to reflect the new kind of platform we were creating: audio content that was meant to be browsed, rather than listened to chronologically in a traditional radio or podcast format. I took inspiration from online magazines, and sourced images to make it possible to quickly browse audio files. The responsive site also has an audio player with playlist functionality, allowing users to remix the provided content and create their own mixtapes of storytelling.
