From the website:

“The Carolina Photojournalism Workshop tells stories of towns and cities around North Carolina. Since 2004, a group of multimedia students from the University of North Carolina travel to these unique locations with a group of professional coaches to produce a documentary website in a week. Students immerse themselves in the lives of the area’s people, and work 24/7 on a video production that gets publicly screened on the final night.”

I joined the Carolina Photojournalism Workshop with two other web developers to create a site that showcased the final video and photo projects the other students would be making.

In addition, I created logos for the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Media and Journalism Visual Communications (Vis-Com) Department and for CPJW as a whole. Finally, I designed t-shirts for everyone who worked on the project.

Design Process

Before building the website in WordPress using the Divi theme, we sat down and made wireframes for what we wanted the design and user experience of the website to be like. We wanted to emphasize the visual nature of the project and highlight the photo and video pieces in a natural way.

Logos

I was asked to create logos for the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Media and Journalism Visual Communications (Vis-Com) department, as well as the overall logo for the Carolina Photojournalism Workshop. Below are the logo variations I came up with, as well as the final logos that were chosen.

T-Shirt Design

I also designed the t-shirts for the participants in the workshop. The simple design on the front was the logo of the workshop, while the back reflected the town that we worked in that year.
