PRPublic Relations Writing Examples

Here are a few examples of my public relations writing from class assignments in the Public Relations Writing course at Loyola. These assignments vary from made up information to factual  information.

PR Writing



Book Project

Book Project

In a Visual  Communications class at Loyola, my final project was to create a book using two given essays. Using images from the Internet and my own photography, I created the Book Project using Adobe Indesign and Adobe Photoshop, by putting together the design and typography skills learned throughout the class.



Book Series

Type Series Process Book

Another project in my Visual Communications class was  to create a typographic process book. We explored the visual possibilities of typography in our assignment with different design requirements and restrictions. The final Type Series Process Book was bounded and turned in.




Digital Artifact Project

I took a class at Loyola titled, Communication and New Media. This class was run through a class wiki where all the students in the class could access, edit and share ideas with each other in one place. The course focused on exploring the way technology affects personal, cultural, and mass communication through examining the historical, societal, and ethical implications of new and interactive forms of media. I built skills in creating meaningful blog posts, creating video blogs, writing ‘thick’ verses ‘thin’ tweets, and much more throughout the semester.

The final group project was to create some sort of new media digital artifact. My team, of four other students, came up with ‘Instafacetwitgramanol’, a pretend pharmaceutical drug that keeps one wired and connected to social media at all times. We created a website in order to mimic that of a real drug on the market, showing the benefits and side effects of this social media drug. We created a commercial to go along with our project as well. See the ‘Artist Statement’ tab on the website to learn more.’
