Hey all! I’m Brittany and I’m the content manager here at Roadtrip. What I do is…well, manage the content! I make sure that all the text, photos, videos, etc… get online without a problem.
One huge project that the Web team, as well as the Design team, has been and will be working on for the majority of 2011, is the revamp of the Interview Archive. We’re redesigning the whole thing, from its physical appearance to its functionality. This is going to be huge!
Right now, all of our interviews are categorized into various Interests and Themes. Interests being things like art, TV, film, technology, etc… and Themes being talking points such as confidence or hard work.
For the past few months, I’ve been working on redesigning our whole categorization process. This has consisted of revisiting our current list of Interests and Themes and adding an entirely new category…Industry! What I’ve been doing is going through and and reorganizing all of our Leaders based on our list of new Industries, Interests, and Themes, as well as adding tags to every video, interview, and excerpt. That’s 290 interviews and at least three excerpts per interview…you do the math, but don’t tell me because I don’t want to know how many videos that is! It’s definitely been a process, but the crew and I are so excited to reveal the final product sometime later this year.
With all that being said, we’d love to get some feedback from you. Tell us what you think could improve the Archive or what you’d like to see in the new Archive.
Stay tuned for updates and keep an eye out for the new and improved Archive coming soon!
